This study attempts to assess the short-, medium-, and long-term mental health impact of the World Trade Center attack on Asian Americans. The course of the psychological distress and its related risk factors will be explored, and the pattern is compared to that of Whites. It also examines Asians� mental health service use patterns and the facilitating factors and barriers to help seeking. It has important policy implications in improving treatment access to this sizeable but understudied subgroup affected by the attack, which has a history of being the lowest mental health service users compared to other races.
