Matthews, Alicia K.; Hughes, Tonda L.
Cultural Diversity & Ethnic Minority Psychology, v7 n1 p75-87 Feb 2001
Examines patterns of use of mental health services by African American lesbians and heterosexual women. Despite evidence of emotional distress, few African American lesbians or heterosexual women were currently in treatment. Results are consistent with other research on heterosexual women but differ from other reports on lesbian women. Discusses implications for service providers. (Author/JDM)
