I was glad to see the campaign against racism in mental health services highlighted (In the News, February 13). Since the mid-1980s, our psychotherapy training has tried to be sensitive to all patients with mental-health problems. This requires trainees and staff to be vigilant about their prejudices and assumptions. But black and Asian therapists are underrepresented in mental health services. Only training programmes that incorporate intercultural therapy can help to rectify this.
