Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to explore the mental well-being of Asian adolescents and their help seeking behaviors in the state of California. Secondary data from the California Health Interview Survey were used to explore these services. Chi-square analysis was used to examine significant relationships between Asian subgroups and mental health symptoms: Asian subgroups and mental health symptoms by gender and differences between Asian subgroups and help seeking behaviors, and differences among Asian groups receiving psychological or emotional counseling in the last 12 months. This study found that gender and mental health symptoms were significantly related. A significant relationship was found between gender and mental health symptoms. Also, Asian adolescents who had feelings of hopelessness, restlessness, depression, and worthlessness had received psychological or emotional counseling.
