Mental health: Asian people less satisfied with services



Asian people are less likely to be satisfied with specialist community mental health services compared to White British or Black people, a study has found.

The study comparing patient experiences of mental health services across communities also found that overall ethnic minorities were less likely to report recieving talking therapies in the past year.

The authors of the study published in the October issue of the British Journal of Psychiatry said the findings reflected the need for improved services for ethnic minorities.
