This paper focus on migrants' utilization of psychiatric care, defined here as a contact in primary care due to psychiatric problems, psychiatric in- and outpatient secondary care, voluntary and compulsory use of psychiatric emergency services and compulsory unit admissions. The utilization of psychiatric care among migrants is lower than for the Swedish-born population during the ten first years in Sweden, except compulsory care. The utilization of psychiatric care increases over time among migrants, but the pattern differs by region of origin. Barriers to psychiatric care among migrants are both on the individual and structural level. Early intervention has proven to be effective in preventing more serious psychiatric morbidity and thus early interventions and increased psychiatric outpatient consumption in migrants could prevent the increased risk of compulsory care which is more common among certain groups of migrants.
