Synopsis: This study examines how child mental health service use varies by three categories: Spiritual and Religious Coping (SRC); Extended Family Caring (EFC) and; Cultural Pride Reinforcement (CPR) of African American racial socialization variables among a sample of 96 African American parents. At the multivariate level, child mental health service use was positively associated with medium levels of endorsement of SRC and EFC, while medium levels of endorsement of CPR were associated with a reduced use of services. Data indicate African American parental endorsement of racial socialization practices is an important cultural factor related to child mental health service use.
