Abstract and Keywords

Abstract This chapter focuses on promoting mental health among Asian immigrants. First, we provide background information about this growing and diverse community. Next, we discuss cultural adjustment, underuse of mental health services, and why it is important to develop services for Asian immigrants. We then describe the major factors that contribute to Asian immigrants’ mental health, including acculturation, social support, and spirituality, as well as Asian immigrants’ use of collectivistic coping strategies. Finally, implications for prevention programs, research, and education are discussed.

Keywords: Asian immigrant mental health, Asian immigrant prevention, Asian immigrant mental health promotion, Asian immigrant adjustment and mental health
