When suffering illnesses, people from different cultural backgrounds usually have their own illness beliefs, the understanding of the meanings of their symptoms based on their cultures and traditions. Due to differences in cultural and educational backgrounds, patients and their providers frequently have different views about an illness. The Engagement Interview Protocol was designed to bridge different views to engage patients in appropriate psychiatric treatment.
