Patterns of Attendance of Child Psychiatry Out-patients with Special Reference to Asian Families

  • Gillian Stern (a1), David Cottrell (a2) and Julian Holmes (a3)

Abstract

Asian and non-Asian referrals to the department of child psychiatry at the London Hospital in 1987 were analysed. Asian referrals were under-represented with respect to the local population but, contrary to our expectations, there were no significant differences between the groups with regard to demographic data, the nature of the presenting problem, and attrition rates.
