doing a presentation on the prevalence of depression among hispanic youth and can't believe how high the rates are for them, much higher than whites and other ethnic groups. It would be interesting to find out why?

Hi Jennie,

I am a graduate students in a Masters Counseling Program in San Diego,CA and I am working on a paper on prevalence of depression among hispanic youth. I found this network and I was wondering if you were able to find emprical research for your presentation. If you did, I was wondering if you could share some the articles that you found with me. I'm having a really hard time finding articles. Thank you, I appreciate your help.

I can tell you that there are plenty of socio-economic reasons that may lead to greater instances of depression among Hispanics. No doubt that that there may be genetic, neurological, or chemical reasons too, but I strongly suspect that the pressures of their social interactions may be a big factor. Hispanics, unlike some other teens, often live in two cultures that are very different in many ways and often at odds. Add to that the weight of poverty, violence in their neighborhoods, and the struggle to fit in at school or with friends and you have the makings for a downward spiral that may go unnoticed by teachers, parents, or priests. I'm getting depressed just thinking about their plight. Well, not to make light of the situation, there are far too many factors to expect there will be a simple conclusion or solution. Educators have to figure a way to make Hispanics feel included, priests have to help them deal with moral issues instead of "preaching" to them, and parents need to become educated in ways to recognize depression and help their children. In many places like Arkansas (where the Hispanic population has soared in a short period) the mental health organizations simply do not have the professionals that know the language or culture well enough to offers specific help. Hispanic organizations like LULAC can be resources for reaching out to the community. Thanks for bringing up the issue.

I want to know what other hispanics have to say about the matter and whether anyone knows about the research in the area.
