Synopsis: Recent data document serious disparities in mental health treatment and outcomes for minorities including children and adolescents. There is an overrepresentation of minorities in public health service systems. In comparison to Whites, low-income minorities have lower life expectancies and poorer health outcomes. Therefore, attention to the predictors and consequences of these observed mental health disparities for ethnic minority groups have gained attention and concern from researchers, policy makers and government officials. This presentation reports on racial and ethnic treatment disparities for Medicaid enrolled children and adolescents with serious mental illness and makes recommendations for clinical practice and future research.
