Mental health disparities exist for ethnic minority populations due to inaccessible and ineffective interventions for these clients. Research findings indicate that ethnic minority clients were often assigned therapists or administered psychological interventions that were incompatible with their cultural backgrounds or life circumstances. Decades of research have identified cultural factors, such as racial/ethnic match, face concern, and social validity, as important contributors to mental health outcomes for ethnic minority populations. This chapter summarizes a research program dedicated to examining the disparities in psychological interventions and mental health outcomes for ethnic minority groups. This work also identified critical cultural factors related to treatment processes and outcomes for these groups. The chapter reviews the current efforts to translate this research program into culturally adapted and community-centered interventions as a way of reducing mental health disparities. Research challenges and future directions in the field of culture and psychological interventions are discussed.
