Latino and Asian parents in California were less likely to seek mental health services for their children displaying serious emotional problems than white and black parents, a study showed. Aside from parental fears of labeling and being blamed for their children's condition, researchers found that other culture-related barriers to mental health treatment included restricted access to culturally appropriate initiatives and few available bilingual providers. The findings appear in the Journal of Behavioral Health Services and Research.
