Abstract

Using data from 2005, 2007, and 2009 California Health Interview Surveys, researchers studied mental health services utilization by race/ethnicity for children ages 5 to 11 years. Parents identified minor emotional difficulties in 18.7 percent of these children and definite or severe difficulties in 7.4 percent. Overall, 7.6 percent of children had at least one mental health visit in the prior year.

Parent-identified need was the most salient predictor of mental health visits for all racial/ethnic groups. Beyond need, no consistent patterns could be determined across racial/ethnic groups. Different factors operated for each racial/ethnic group, suggesting the need for studies to examine mental health need, mental health service use, and determinants by racial/ethnic subgroup.

These findings suggest that a "one-size-fits-all approach" with regard to policies and practices aimed at reducing mental health disparities will not be effective for all racial/ethnic groups.
