Ortiz, Velma; Arce, Carlos H.
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v6 n2 p127-43 Jun 1984
The relationship of language orientation and mental health at different levels of socioeconomic status was examined. It was found that Chicanos who incorporate behavioral aspects of American culture to the total exclusion of Mexican culture are less healthy, while those who incorporate both cultures simultaneously are psychologically healthier.
