Abstract: Researchers from the Institute of Community Health Sciences at Queen Mary conducted a systematic review about ethnic group variations in pathway to specialist mental health services. African Caribbean people are more likely to be treated by compulsion in hospital, but the picture is more complex. In two studies white groups were at higher risk of compulsory admission. There were few studies of mental health care in the community and primary care. However, there is some evidence that primary care assessments of mental health are influenced by the ethnic origin of patients.
