After reviewing the various diagnoses covered by the DSM-III, the authors review what is known about the psychiatric problems found among American Indian & Alaska Native children. Many of the DSM-III categories have not been covered in the Indian literature. Problems that the literature have identified among Indians include things such as abuse, delinquency, & suicide. Past studies indicate some differences in incidence rates of various diagnoses between Indians & the rest of the US population.
