A research was done to establish how depression, satisfaction in life and anxiety among  Traumatic Brain Injury patients are related to their ethnic/racial background.  

The study included 1662 individuals from four groups: blacks, whites, Hispanic and Asian Pacific I slanders.  The testing procedure used four measures: patient characteristics, patient's Health Questionnaire, satisfaction with life scale 3, generalized anxiety dis order 7- item scale.

Test results indicated that Asian Pacific Islanders' depression increased while it decreased in Hispanic Individuals.  However Hispanic individuals' depression decreased more than that of white individuals.   Satisfaction with life does not appear to be different from one group to another. Black patients had lower satisfaction with life than white individuals.  Racial background does not seem to play a part  in anxiety among patients.

I see value in this research because it delivers a message to mental health professionals that " cultural diversity" should be included in their intervention program.  The cultural diversity has  a significant impact on mental health of Traumatic Brain Injury patients.
