Factors Associated with Mental Health Service Utilization Among Ethiopian Immigrants and Refugees

This study assesses factors associated with mental health service utilization by Ethiopian immigrants and refugees in the U.S. A cross-sectional survey, based on Anderson and Newman ’s Framework of Health Services, which examines facilitators and barriers of service utilization, was implemented to gather data from 297 Ethiopian immigrants and refugees in the U.S. from February to March 2018. Descriptive statistics, chi-squared tests, and logistic regression were calculated. A pproximately 13.3% of participants sought mental health services from healthcare professionals; while 17.3% utilized non-healthcare professionals for mental health problems. A mental health need (depressive symptoms) was identified. A model containing predictors of mental health service use was stat istically significant, with gender, marital status, and employment (full-time or part-time) as the strongest predictors. The findings suggest a need for the development of culturally appropriate interventions and implementation of policies to minimize barriers to mental health services among this un der-researched population.

Our weekly round-up of the best psychology coverage from elsewhere on the web It turns out we perceive much less colour information in our peripheral vision than we might think, reports Neuroskeptic at Discover Magazine. Researchers showed participants a series of images, ending with a scene in which the periphery was desaturated or converted to strange hues. On some trials as many as three-quarters of participants didn’t notice that anything was odd. What’s it like living with chronic pain, with those around you unaware that you are suffering?
