summary: Migration has become a common trend and an expected fact of life among the majority of underdeveloped and developing nations. Immigration exposes newcomers to a new experience, an acculturation. Acculturation is not always a successful process and may become stressful. Acculturative stress can manifest itself in different ways. Many researchers have suggested a connection between immigration and increased risk of developing mental health/addiction problems. Studies have shown that ethnocultural/racial groups have experienced difficulties in gaining access to mental health and addiction care services. This background paper is prepared to 1) discuss the mental health & addiction state of Ethnocultural/racial communities, and 2) offer working recommendations.
