  1. 1Variables were dichotomized as follows: level of need for mental health services (0 = moderate need, 1 = high need); diagnosis of psychotic disorder (0 = absent, 1 = present); sex (0 = female, 1 = male); ethnicity (0 = non ethno-racial, 1 = ethno-racial); access to family physician (0 = absent; 1 = present); and diagnosis of substance dependence (0 = absent; 1 = present). The reference category was set to 0 for all variables.
