Diversity in Global Mental Health: Gender, Lifespan, Access to Care, Treatment and Social Strata by Sabine Bährer-Kohler
English | PDF | 2019 | 98 Pages | ISBN : 3030291111 | 2.3 MB

Mental illness occurs in all communities, regardless of social status, gender, race, or culture. Despite this, research in mental health historically has been biased towards Western-centric heterosexual male models of disease. Many models of service have excluded sexual and ethnic minorities and may not have been inclusive of different cultures or spiritual approaches. All of these factors may in turn isolate these communities and thus lead to an increased vulnerability to disease.
