Abstract

Minority children constitute a rapidly growing segment of the population. The understanding and treatment of children and mental health is in its infancy. Ethnic minority children suffer due to a mental health system that is insensitive to race and culture. Misdiagnosis and improper or inadequate treatment often result. Researchers have an obligation to study variables such as race and SES, rather than control for them. This article explores issues related to research addressing minority children and their families. Recommendations for research, education, and service are presented.
