Black Californians are more likely to experience mental health problems than

other ethnic groups, and they are less likely to get the care they need,

according to a study released Tuesday.

 

The study, by Santa Monica-based Rand Corp., shows a connection between

untreated mental health problems and multiple absences from work, which can

take an economic toll on individuals and families in the form of lost pay

and even lost jobs. That dynamic disproportionately affects communities of

color.
