Racial Disparity in Mental Health Services Why Race Still Matters

Heftet / 2010 / Engelsk
Differences unfortunately still remain in the way many races are provided health and mental health services. This book comprehensively examines this tough issue across a wide spectrum of areas, including racial identity, intergroup relations, education, socioeconomic conditions, substance abuse, services for the elderly, and methodological issues relating to race research. Respected experts from various disciplines discuss how various populations, such as preschool children, adolescents, working-age adults, the elderly, African Americans, and minorities in general, experience disparity in today's system along with approaches to rectify the problems. This book was published as a special issue of Social Work in Public Health.
