Culturally sensitive treatment models

A new treatment model, culturally sensitive to the needs and concerns of Chinese immigrants, appears to significantly increase the identification and treatment of depression in this group.  Although depression is no less common in Asian Americans, a combination of unfamiliarity with mental illness and a cultural stigma have kept people in these populations from seeking help for their depression.  This kind of treatment model could be adapted to other cultures unfamiliar or uncomfortable with depression and its treatment.
