Chinese American Kids Have Mental Health Concerns

World Journal, news, Posted: Jul 15, 2009

NEW YORK Recognized for their excellent academic performances, young Chinese Americans often have mental health issues that are neglected, reports the World Journal. In June, the Journal of Family Psychology published 15 essays on mental health, six of them focused on Chinese immigrant families and their children. The authors believe that mental health issues become more important as the Chinese population in the United States continues to expand. Experts explained that young Chinese immigrants face great pressures to achieve, to act as interpreters for their parents and to overcome cultural and language barriers. As a result, they learn about family problems and financial stress at an early age, causing anxiety. The authors recommended that Chinese parents pay more attention to their children's mental development and find ways to ease their stress.
