Race and PsychiatryStreaming Video - 2010
The issue of race within psychiatry is most apparent in the psychiatric hospitals and institutions where, as one doctor who appears in this program puts it, "there is an overrepresentation of black people. There is also a problem of misdiagnosis and mistreatment because some medical staff don't understand why people from different cultures behave contrary to their expectations and therefore consider their behavior dysfunctional. This program looks at the issues of racism in mental health care, and at some black self-help groups that offer alternatives to the conventional psychiatric practices that have failed to meet the needs of the black community.
