Tristan McGeorge and Dinesh Bhugra tackle the topic of race, class, mental health, and human rights. They ponder differential rates of mental disorders (especially depression and psychosis) among racial and ethnic minorities in the UK, and note negative and adversarial pathways to care for black and minority ethnic patients. They document self-reported racism as a confirmed contributor to common mental disorders and psychosis, and institutional racism in mental health services. They note strategies for improving race equality in mental health, including the role of education in medical schools and psychiatrist training, government organizations, and advocacy groups, and note the role of human rights frameworks in the reform process, including international, regional, and national measures.
