Examining Racial/Ethnic Minority Treatment Experiences with Specialty Behavioral Health Service Providers

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Redmond, M.L., Sandro Galea, and J. Delva. 2009. "Examining Racial/Ethnic Minority Treatment Experiences with Specialty Behavioral Health Service Providers." Community Mental Health Journal, 45(2): 85-96.

This study investigated whether satisfaction and helpfulness of treatment by mental health service provider is related to race/ethnicity and psychosocial factors. Data from the National Co morbidity Survey-Replication study, which administered mental health service use questions for the past 12-months (1332), was analyzed. Data were stratified by service provider and analyzed with multiple logistic regressions. Racial/ethnic minorities were generally more likely to be satisfied with services provided by specialty mental health providers compared to white respondents. Racial/ethnic minorities generally perceived the services provided by specialty mental health providers as more helpful than did other racial/ethnic groups. Those who reported high cultural identity were more likely to find their treatment experience less satisfying and less helpful. Greater attention to specialty referrals for racial/ethnic minority groups may fruitfully contribute to improve help-seeking for these groups. The role culture plays in shaping the mental health treatment experience needs to be further investigated.
