Racial-ethnic disparities in use of any mental health care increased among Americans between 1990 and 2003, according to analyses reported in the lead article. Disparities increased particularly between whites and blacks who used mental health care in the general medical sector and between whites and Latinos who used care in the specialty sector. Andrea Alexis Ault-Brutus, Ph.D., M.P.A., compared data for adult respondents with a diagnosed mood or anxiety disorder in the 1990–1992 National Comorbidity Survey (NCS) and in the 2001–2003 National Comorbidity Survey Replication (NCS-R). In the earlier survey, the prevalence rates of these disorders were similar for whites, blacks, and Latinos, as were the adjusted rates of receipt of any care. However, in the NCS-R, a significantly higher percentage of white Americans (36%) than black (23%) or Latino (25%) Americans reported receipt of any care. In addition, data from both surveys indicated white-black disparities in receipt of minimally adequate care—41% versus 21% in the NCS and 56% versus 45% in the NCS-R. A possible explanation for the increasing disparities in use of care, especially in the general medical sector, is greater use and acceptance of antidepressant medications among white Americans than among black and Latino Americans, the author notes. She also points to the shortage in the specialty sector of psychiatrists and psychologists from racial-ethnic minority groups (page 531).
