Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Relationship between Latino adolescents and their mental health well-being: A quantitative study
by Elizalde, Karina, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 57; 1527922
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this thesis was to assess the mental and emotional well-being of Latino adolescents; this was achieved by completing a quantitative study analyzing secondary data obtained from the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS). The results revealed that there is a significant relationship among adolescent gender and alcohol consumption with mental and emotional well-being. The results also indicated that there is no significant relationship among language spoken in the home and place of birth with the mental and emotional well-being of youth. The findings may be beneficial in understanding the relationship between mental and emotional well-being and Latino youth.
