Five articles and four brief reports address race-ethnicity as a factor in attitudes toward, access to, and quality of care. In an analysis of data from the National Comorbidity Survey Replication, Ruth S. Shim, M.D., M.P.H., and colleagues were surprised by findings that contradicted their hypothesis: African Americans and Latinos reported greater willingness to seek care than non-Hispanic whites and less embarrassment if others found out about their treatment (page 1336). In a pooled sample of more than 2,200 participants with mental illness from two national surveys, Amanda T. Woodward, Ph.D., and associates found that 34% had used some form of complementary and alternative medicine in the past year; differences were evident among three racial-ethnic groups—African Americans, black Caribbeans, and whites (page 1342). In a nine-month follow-up study of more than 2,500 clients of 43 community-based drug treatment programs in California, Noosha Niv, Ph.D., and colleagues found higher severity levels at entry in several domains among white clients and racial-ethnic disparities in treatment placements, treatment use, and outcomes (page 1350). Several studies have shown that Youth Partners in Care (1999–2003) improved the quality of depression care. A re-examination of the data, by Victoria K. Ngo, Ph.D., and colleagues has revealed particularly strong intervention effects for black youths and weak effects for white participants (page 1357). Among nearly 1,500 Caucasian and Hispanic youths with past-year major depression, Pierre K. Alexandre, Ph.D., M.P.H., and colleagues found that 34% received adequate treatment, but the proportion was significantly higher among Caucasian youths (36%) than among Hispanic youths (27%) (page 1365). The four brief reports look at race-ethnicity as a factor in rates of mental health-related 911 calls (page 1376), inconsistencies in diagnosis and symptoms among bilingual and English-speaking Latinos and Euro-Americans (page 1379), Latinos' preferences for psychiatric advance directives (page 1383), and service use among maltreated youths from African-American families (page 1386).
