Cultural Diversity, Mental Health and Psychiatry: The Struggle Against Racism

This book explores the view that the two main psychiatric diagnostic ‘bibles’[1] in use across Europe and North America rest largely on the social norms of white, western culture, and as such are forms of pseudo-science.

It examines how and why this situation has come about, and makes specific practical, often surprising, suggestions for changing the status quo.

Cultural Diversity, Mental Health and Psychiatry: The Struggle Against Racism, by Dr. Suman Fernando (psychiatrist), published 2003.
