Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Study finds a dearth of mental health interventions for ethnic minority youth in the US

(Arizona State University) A research team from Arizona State University, DePaul University and the University of Southern California analyzed how effective evidence-based mental health intervention programs were for ethnic minority youth in the United States. Four treatment programs met the criteria of 'well-established.' These treatments addressed substance abuse, disruptive behavior and anxiety in Hispanic/Latino and African-American youth. Native-American and Asian-American youth were underrepresented or absent from research studies on mental health intervention programs.
