Hispanic Americans and Mental Health Services: A Comparison of Hispanic, Black, and White Admissions to Selected Mental Health Facilities, 1975. Mental Health Service System Reports. Series CN No. 3.
Rosenstein, Marilyn J.
This report compares Hispanic American admissions with white and black admissions to selected mental health facilities in 1975. It focuses on differences and similarities in the use of mental health facilities by the three racial/ethnic groups as related to age, sex, marital status, educational attainment, source of referral, previous psychiatric care, diagnosis, expected payment source, and length of stay. Data presented in the text and tables were derived from four surveys conducted during 1975 by the National Institute of Mental Health. A discussion of sampling designs and procedures for the surveys is appended to the report. (Author/APM)
