Abstract: Explores cultural variations in the coping & adaptation process of families caring for chronically mentally ill relatives among 3 main ethnic groups in Singapore - Chinese, Malay, & Indian. Interviews conducted with primary caregivers in 30 families showed cross-cultural differences in the adverse effects on the family system, the use of coping strategies, & the utilization of support networks. A culturally sensitive, indigenous model of community mental health services designed to overcome family resistance is presented.
