You may want to look at news sources to get a different perspective, particularly if there are reasons why certain populations such as racial or ethnic groups, age groups, geographic locations, gender, or diagnostic groups are included in demographics. How do cultural customs impact mental health diagnoses and treatment? Are there cultural customs which influence the perspective of mental health?
