In the past 20 years many worthy initiatives have been implemented to eliminate disparities. However, the study by Alegria and colleagues shows that significant disparities persist into the 21st century. These authors analyzed pooled data for nearly 9,000 adults from three national surveys. They found significant differences in access to and quality of depression treatments among those with a past-year depressive disorder: 40% of non-Latino whites did not access any treatment, compared with 69% of Asians, 64% of Latinos, and 59% of African Americans. Receipt of adequate treatment was less likely for individuals from minority groups who obtained care. These disparities were evident even when the analyses controlled for socioeconomic variables.
