When Psychological Problems Hit Asian Immigrants

World Journal, Posted: Jul 16, 2008


NEW YORK – A nationwide research on Asian Americans’ psychological health by the University of Washington shows that immigrants who came to the United States before they were 25 are more likely to have psychological problems than those who immigrated at an older age, the World Journal reports.

Over 1,400 foreign-born Asian Americans participated in the research and Janxin Leu, assistant professor of psychology at the University of Washington, said that 13 percent of those in their study, who came to the United States early in life, were well educated, and earned well, experienced anxiety or depression. But among those who came at an older age, only 9 percent experienced similar problems. That’s because devastating experiences in early life have a long-term impact, the researchers concluded.
