This study uses data from the NLAAS to investigate the relationship between culture and the level of psychiatric needs. Contrary to trends, those U.S. born with non-serious disorders were less likely to use mental health services. Results indicate that in order to effectively treat Asian Americans with mental health disorders, interventions need to take into account service use patterns that are impacted by both acculturation and the level of need.
