Abstract

This chapter presents information on mental health issues in Asian American children, focusing on cultural orientation and minority-related experiences as posing challenges to the maintenance of mental health, as well as providing strengths which contribute to resilience in this group. We then recommend some ways through which we may draw upon the strengths of Asian American youth to promote resiliency and overcome vulnerabilities in adjustment.
