This study examines the predictors of mental health service use among patients in an ethnically diverse public-care women's clinic. While waiting for their clinic appointments, 187 Latina, African American, and White women were interviewed about their attitudes towards mental illness and mental health services. White women were much more likely to have made a mental health visit in the past than the ethnic minority women. Having a substance use problem, use of mental health services by family or friends, and beliefs about causes of mental illness were all predictors of making a mental health visit. (Author)
