Ethnicity and Mental Health : Fourth National Survey of Ethnic Minorities


Mental Health and Ethnicity provides the first ever analysis of rates of mental illness among a nationally representative community sample of ethnic minority and white respondents. There is no comparable information available on the mental health of ethnic minorities groups in Britain.

This important report looks first at how rates of illness vary across and within ethnic groups. It then assesses to what degree this variation is influenced by socio-economic factors; and goes on to show the ways in which the findings of the Fourth National Survey and follow-up research challenge the existing assumptions about the mental health of ethnic minorities groups.
