Abstract

Some reports suggest that mental health services are not meeting the needs of young people from cultural minorities. This review focuses on adolescents' perceptions of mental health problems and services and adolescent help-seeking behaviour, with a particular focus on African/Afro-Caribbean adolescents. Some of the influences on African/Afro-Caribbean young people, which affect these perceptions and behaviours, are also discussed. Adolescents tend to have negative and stigmatising perceptions about mental health problems and services. Help-seeking is low, particularly for boys, and adolescents often prefer to seek informal help through long-term, well established relationships. This review highlights the need for more research into help-seeking amongst African/Afro-Caribbean adolescents and suggestions are made for future studies, as well as discussing some of the clinical implications of this literature review.
