Patients of a minority background do not receive equal therapeutic input as white patients within the Mental Health Unit

Abstract:
This paper describes an analysis of therapeutic input for ethnic minority patients at a small, private adolescent psychiatric hospital. The researcher, a charge nurse on one of the three units comprising the hospital looked at the input given as treatment from the inpatient therapy team; from the family therapist, the psychotherapist and the clinical psychologist – and compared the input given with that of the ethnic minority group. A vast deficit was found in therapeutic treatment given to the ethnic minorities, reproduced in graph form. These graphs were presented to the therapy staff, along with the two consultant psychiatrists who led the therapy teams during one to one semi-structured interviews of fifteen minutes duration. The content of the interviews was tape recorded and transcribed. The data was then analysed using a discourse analysis. The researcher analysed the different versions of the participants’ views on the subject in question with the aim of providing further inclusive discourses (ie meaningful conversations, subject matter for supervision, this paper itself and areas for further study and research).
