Trans-cultural Aspects of Puerto Rican Mental Illness in New York
Rendon, Mario
International Journal of Social Psychiatry, 20, 1-2, 18-24, Spr-Sum 74
Epidemiological studies indicate that mental illness is considerably high among Puerto Rican adolescents in New York. Besides poverty, crowding, illiteracy, lack of skill for qualified jobs, and other sources of stress, trans-culturation is said to explain some of these facts.
