Abstract:
Snowden’s article in the February issue of the Journal presents a comprehensive review of the literature regarding the role that practitioners’ bias plays in the development of racial and ethnic disparities in the current mental health system. Missing from this review is the growing literature that directly examines the role that culture plays in the expression, presentation, and course of mental illnesses.
