Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Hispanics constitute the largest ethnic minority group in the United States, yet little is known about the rates of mental health problems among Hispanic youth. Given the overrepresentation of minority youth in the juvenile justice system, it is important to explore the mental health symptoms among Hispanic youth and potential differences in symptom presentation based on the language of screening measures. Data from 8,628 Hispanic youths who completed the MAYSI-2 in English or Spanish was analyzed. Language and gender effects were found on several MAYSI-2 scales. Potential implications for these findings will be discussed.
