“Racism and Cultural Bias: Impact on Child and Adolescent Psychiatry”

 

The issue of race, racism and supporting marginalized groups has become a part of our national discourse.  Medicine and Psychiatry must also face the history of racism and bias that exists in our professions.  Disparities in access, lack of culturally aware providers and the paucity of psychiatrists of color lead to poorer outcomes for underrepresented groups.  Due to historical bias and inadequate or misinformed treatment, many families of color are apprehensive about seeking mental health treatment for their children.  It is essential as psychiatrists that we acknowledge and understand the impact of racial trauma and be prepared to support our patients.

 

This two-part series will review the history of racism in psychiatry, identify how child and adolescent psychiatrists can explore becoming more culturally aware and discuss how we can support marginalized groups.
