Depression and American Indian/Alaska Native

Compared to the general population, American Indian and Alaskan Native individuals underutilize mental health services, have higher therapy "dropout" rates and are less likely to respond to treatment. In addition, the words "depressed" and "anxious" are absent from some AI/AN languages.
