A follow-up of second generation Afro-Caribbeans and white British with a first admission diagnosis of schizophrenia : attitudes to mental illness and psychiatric services of patients and relatives.
A sample of second generation Afro-Caribbeans and white British with a diagnosis of schizophrenia, and their relatives, were interviewed 5-10 years after first admission.
There was no difference between Afro-Caribbeans and whites on measures of satisfaction, conceptualization about illness and attitudes to different types of treatment and management.
However black relatives were more likely to attribute causation of illness to substance use and to view services as racist.
Most black patients and relatives thought that black day centres would be beneficial.
