WACP

Culture impacts mental illness so that culturally relevant care is needed for patients of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

From a clinical perspective, there is a need to improve cultural competence to provide proper psychiatric care of each patient, considering the ethnic/race/cultural background, irregardless of minority or majority status.
