Mental illness is a major health care problem in the U.S. affecting every fourth individual. Cultural factors result in reduced utilization of mental health services by Asian American adults. Not much work has been done on the predictive nature of this relationship between ethnicity and mental health care utilization. The aim of the present study was to identify this relationship within the Asian American population. This research can be used to develop policies and interventions to counter this problem. Data from the California Health Interview Survey (2014) were analyzed to gain insight into the predictive relationship between Asian ethnicity and access to mental health care in adults in California. It was seen that limited English proficiency were significantly associated with reduced utilization of services, whereas age and gender were not found to be a predictive indicator of mental health services utilization in Asian American adults.
