This chapter discusses the influence of culture on the route an individual akes to treatment for psychological distress and the treatment received. Culture is difficult to measure. All categories of cultural variables have different meanings and measure different things. Research into them leads to different hypotheses. Given this reality there is no need to join the cul-de-sac argument of whether one or the other is the most important.

Associations with pathways to care, service use, and outcome will be presented.
