Afro Caribbean people living in the United Kingdom have historically been overrepresented in the 'mental health' system in in-patient units; they are also more likely to enter services through adverse routes such as the police or criminal justice system. There have been a number of explanations that have been postulated to account for Afro Caribbean people's over-representation and these have usually been concerned with services or views drawn from clinical samples. This research was interested in how the people themselves from the Afro Caribbean general population constructed 'mental health'.
