Abstract: Depression and suicide rates among Latina teens are far higher than most other ethnic group. Over 13% of adolescents in this population attempted suicide in 2012 -- nearly twice the rate of their African-American and white peers. It is vital that we understand the underlying causes for depression and suicidal ideation, and deal with them appropriately.

Abstract: General statistical information on dating/relationship violence among Hispanic teens. One in five teens reported having experienced abuse during a dating relationship in the past year. Psychological abuse was most common, (15%) but about 6.6% expereinced physical violence and 5.6% sexual violence. Teens who experience dating violence often also experience violence in other relationships and areas of their lives. (Crime, peer abuse, child abuse, sexual abuse, etc.) Few of these teens report the violence, or seek help from formal or official sources.

Abstract: Over one in 3 Hispanic-Americans report experience symptoms of depression. This paper addresses possible connections between depression in Hispanic-American mothers and poverty/food insecurity. Researchers used a sample of 103 low-income Latina mothers living in rural communities. Subjects were interviewed annually over a 3 year period, with questions about their life-situation (income, stressors, relationships, etc.) and a depression screening test. Higher depression scores were commonly associated with more financial stress, juggling multiple roles (i.e. childcare and working) and less family/spousal support.

Abstract: Hispanic-Americans make up about 16% of the U.S. population. They are less likely than most other racial/ethnic groups to seek help for mental health concerns, but are more likely to experience cultural stressors that make treatment advisible. High suicide rates are of particular concern. Barriers to treatment include a lack of bilingual and/or cultrally competent providers, and treatment programs that specifically address the needs of this population.

Abstract: Este estudio longitudinal examinó los patrones de uso de marihuana entre una población de mujeres afroamericanas y portorriqueñas. 475 sujetos fueron encuestados 5 veces durante un período de 18 años, desde la adolescencia (14 años de edad promedio) hasta la edad adulta (edad promedio 32 años). Los datos fueron recogidos como parte de un estudio más amplio sobre el uso del tabaco. A los sujetos se les preguntó sobre el uso actual y pasado de la marihuana y sobre otros factores, incluyendo los síntomas depresivos, comportamientos de riesgo e iras. Basado en sus patrones de consumo de marihuana, los sujetos fueron puestos en 3 grupos; No usuarios (quienes habían utilizado nunca o rara vez), los aumentadores (aquellos que continuaron usando en tasas c recientes en la edad adulta) y desertores (aquellos que utilizan hasta la adolescencia, luego detienen o disminuyen agudamente el uso en la edad adulta. Durante la edad adulta, los aumentadores reportaron mayores niveles de depresión e ira que los no usuarios y los que dejaron de fumar y también tenían más probabilidades de informar trastornos de consumo de otras sustancias. Esto indica una fuerte correlación entre el consumo de marihuana y pobre ajuste psicológico, aunque no está claro si el consumo de marihuana provoca el pobre ajuste o si hay otros factores involucrados.///This longitudinal study examined marijuana use patterns among a population of African-American and Puerto Rican women. 475 subjects were surveyed 5 times over an 18 year period, from adolescence (average age 14 years) through adulthood (average age 32 years.) Data was collected as part of a larger study on tobacco use. Subjects were asked about current and past marijuana use, and about other factors, including depressive symptoms, risk-taking behaviors and angers. Based on their patterns of marijuana use, subjects were put into 3 groups; non-users (those who had never or rarely used), increasers (those who continued to use at increasing rates into adulthood) and quitters (those who used through adolescence, then stopped or sharply decreased use in adulthood. During adulthood, increasers reported higher levels of despression and anger than non-users and quitters, and were also more likely to report other substance use disorders. This indicates a strong correlation between marijuana use and poor psychological adjustment, though it is unclear if marijuana use causes the poor adjustment or if there are other factors involved.

Abstract: Aunque el uso de sustancias entre los adolescentes ha sido, durante muchos años, más común entre los niños, en las últimas décadas se ha ido estrechando la brecha de género, y entre algunas poblaciones, la utilización de determinadas sustancias ahora es más común entre las adolescentes. La baja autoestima, problemas de peso y la búsqueda de aprobación de compañeros y novios están entre los factores que pueden estar llevando a mayor uso. Este estudio examinó la efectividad de un programa de prevención informático (CD-ROM o internet), utilizado por madres hispanas/latinas y afroamericanas e hijas jóvenes adolescentes (10 – 13 años) juntas, sobre uso de sustancias, aptitudes para tomar decisiones y autoestima. El programa de 10 sesiones fue diseñado para ser divertido e interactivo, con personajes animados demostrando habilidades para resolver problemas. Participaron alrededor de 550 pares de madre e hija, con la mitad completando la intervención y la otra mitad sirviendo como grupo de control. Todos los sujetos completaron un pre-test y post-test, y las madres completaron preguntas sobre reglas domésticas, control parental, etc. Cuando se compararon los resultados posteriores a la prueba, las chicas que habían terminado la intervención informaron mejor comunicación con sus madres, una mayor autoestima, menos depresión y más confianza en su capacidad para evitar el uso de sustancias. Las tasas de uso actual de drogas eran bajas entre ambos grupos, pero el grupo de control informó tasas más altas de consumo de alcohol en los últimos 30 días. Aunque la falta de seguimiento a largo plazo hace que sea imposible determinar si la intervención tendrá efectos de largo alcance, a corto plazo los resultados son prometedores. Los investigadores también tienen en cuenta que la necesidad de acceso en casa a un ordenador dio lugar a un grupo de muestra que puede no ser representante. (La mayoría de los sujetos eran de medianos ingresos con padres bien educados).///While substance use among adolescents has been, for many years, more common among boys, in recent decades the gender gap has been narrowing, and among some populations, use of certain substances is now more common among adolescent girls. Low self-esteem, weight concerns, and approval seeking from peers and boyfriends are among the factors that may be leading to higher use. This study looked at the effectiveness of a computer-based (CD-ROM or internet) prevention program, used by Hispanic and African-American mothers and young-adolescent daughters (10-13 years) together, on substance use, decision-making skills, and self-esteem. The 10-session program was designed to be fun and interactive, with animated characters demonstrating problem-solving skills. About 550 mother-daughter pairs participated, with half completing the intervention and half serving as a control group. All subjects completed a pre-test and post-test, and mothers completed questions on household rules, parental monitoring, etc. When post-test results were compared, girls who had completed the intervention reported better communication with their mothers, higher self-esteem, less depression, and more confidence in their ability to avoid substance use. Actual drug use rates were low among both groups, but the control group did report higher rates of alcohol use in the past 30 days. While lack of long-term follow-up makes it impossible to determine if the intervention will have long-range effects, short term results are promising. Researchers also note that the need for home-computer access resulted in a sample group that may not be representative. (Most subjects were middle-income with well-educated parents.)

Abstract: Este estudio examinó los factores que influyen en la edad de la primera relación sexual y otros comportamientos de alto riesgo entre una muestra de unas 160 mujeres latinas adultas. Estas mujeres (edad media de 27 años, aproximadamente la mitad nacida en los Estados Unidos nacido) y sus madres (edad media 52, 85% nacida en el extranjero) fueron entrevistadas sobre uso de drogas y alcohol, prácticas sexuales y una variedad de factores demográficos. el 37% de las madres y el 58% de las hijas cumplieron los criterios de los investigadores para el abuso de drogas o del alcohol y el uso de sustancias antes del sexo era común. El uso de sustancias por las madres se asoció con la edad del primer sexo y el uso de sustancia entre las hijas. Debido a que tanto la iniciación sexual temprana y el uso de drogas/alcohol antes del sexo están asociados con un mayor riesgo de VIH, el uso materno de drogas puede ser un factor en las altas tasas de infección por VIH entre las mujeres latinas jóvenes.///This study examined factors influencing the age of first sexual intercourse and other high risk behaviors among a sample of about 160 adult Latina women. These women (average age 27 years, about half U.S. born) and their mothers (average age 52, 85% foreign born) were interviewed about drug and alcohol use, sex practices and a variety of demographic factors. 37% of mothers and 58% of daughters met the researchers criteria for drug and/or alcohol abuse, and the use of substances before sex was common. Substance use by mothers was associated with earlier age of first sex and substance use among the daughters. Because both early sexual initiation and drug/alcohol use before sex are associated with increased risk of HIV, maternal drug use may be a factor in the high rates of HIV infection among young Latina women.

Aunque hay poca discusión sobre necesidades de salud específicas de afroamericanos y las minorías étnicas, incluye una mención de las enfermedades que son de particular interés para estas poblaciones. (Por ejemplo, afroamericanos corren mayor riesgo de hipertensión arterial y diabetes y deben ser examinados para la enfermedad de células falciformes).///A general guidebook on women's health. Includes information on recommended screenings for women at high and average risk for disease, heart health, medicare coverage, warning signs for heart attack and stroke, bone health, pregnancy health and medical care, breastfeeding, stress management, menopause, reproductive health, respiratory health (including encouragement to stop smoking), violence prevention, and maintaining a healthy weight. While there is little discussion of health needs specific to African Americans and ethnic minorities, it does include some mention of diseases that are of particular concern to these populations. (For example, African Americans are at increased risk for high blood pressure and diabetes, and should be screened for sickle cell disease.)

Abstract: El estudio evalúa la efectividad de un programa de prevención basado en computadoras destinada a adolescentes jóvenes negras e hispanas/Latinas. Este grupo de edad está en un riesgo particular para el uso del tabaco y el alcohol, con los jóvenes adolescentes a menudo comenzando a utilizarlos para encajar con sus compañeros o recibir la aprobación de los novios. El programa fue probado en 546 niñas de 10 a 13 años. Las niñas eran generalmente de familias de clase media [la participación requirió una computadora en el hogar], con aproximadamente la mitad de la madres habiéndose graduado de la Universidad y aproximadamente la mitad en los hogares de dos padres. Todos los participantes completaron pruebas pre y post, y la mitad completó la intervención mientras que el resto fueron controles. Cuando se completó el estudio, el grupo de intervención mostró mejor comunicación madre e hija y más confianza en su capacidad para evitar el consumo de alcohol. (Poco efecto fue encontrado al consumo de tabaco, marihuana y el uso de drogas recetadas, pero esto es probable porque el uso de estas sustancias era ya muy bajo en la población de muestra.)///Study evaluates the effectiveness of a computer-based prevention program aimed at black and hispanic young adolescent girls. This age group is at particular risk for tobacco and alcohol use, with young adolescents often beginning to use in order to fit in with peers or receive the approval of boyfriends. The program was tested on 546 10-13 year old girls. Girls were generally from middle class families [participation required a computer in the home], with about half the mothers having gradauted from college, and about half in two-parent homes. All parcipants completed pre-and-post tests, and half completed the intervention while the rest were controls. When the study was completed, the intervention group showed better mother-daughter communication, and more confidence in their ability to avoid alcohol use. (Little effect was found on smoking, marijuana and prescription drug use, but this is likely because the use of these substances was already very low in the sample population.) / El estudio apoya el valor de las intervenciones específicas del género y basados en computadoras que involucran a las niñas y las madres.

Abstract: En este estudio, A 316 mujeres latinas de diversas nacionalidades (en su mayoría cubanas y centro/sudamericanas) y niveles de aculturación se les preguntó sobre el uso de drogas y sobre sus creencias y actitudes sobre la adicción. Específicamente los encuestadores querían saber si los sujetos creían que la adicción era sobre todo espiritual, moral o de carácter, psicosocial o basada en enfermedad. Las mujeres con diferentes niveles de aculturación (basado en el dominio del idioma) tienden a tener distintas creencias. El uso personal de drogas, los ingresos y la educación también influyeron en las creencias.///In this study, 316 Latina women from various national backgrounds (mostly Cuban and Central/South American) and levels of accultuation were asked about drug use, and about their beliefs and attitudes on addiction. Specifically surveyers wanted to know if the subjects believed that addiction was mostly spiritual, moral/character, psychosocial or disease-based. Women with differing levels of acculturation (based on language proficiency) tended to have different beliefs. Personal use of drugs, income and education also influenced beliefs.

Abstract: This longitudinal study of pregnant African-American and Latina adolescents examined how substance use patterns changed over the course of the pregnancy and in the early months of parenthood. Data was taken from a larger study focusing on HIV prevention and was collected at 4 points during the pregnancy and post-partum period. Subjects were asked about past use of cigarettes, alcohol and marijuana, current use at every stage of data collection, and the use of hard drugs by boyfriends. They were also asked questions assessing self-esteem, religiosity, depression, and acculturation. Self-reported substance use rates were very low throughout the pregnancies, with 2-4% of subjects reporting current use of any substance. Past use, however, was common, and use rates increased after the babies were born. Mothers who had previously used substances, who had a partner/boyfriend who used, or who had a history of child abuse were more likely to begin/return to use after giving birth. Study emphasizes the importance of continued support and education for these young women, and researchers suggest that appealing to maternal feelings of protectiveness may be an effective tool.

Abstract: Female condoms are a highly effective method of both HIV prevention and contraception which allow women to control and make decisions about their own health and reproductive choices. However, the female condom is little used and little known, with factors such as cost and unfamiliarity serving as barriers to use. In this study, 461 poor, high-risk, mostly minority women in Hartford Connecticut were surveyed about their familiarity with and use of FCs, and factors that influenced their decisions about use. While most subjects were familiar with the product, few had tried it, and even fewer used it on a regular basis. Research found numerous and complex reasons for non-use. Even health care providers are often unfamiliar with or dubious about FCs, and they are not widely carried by pharmacies. Researchers believe that increased availability and knowlege will increase use, and reduce the risk of HIV infection in this population.

Abstract: Latino adolescents experience depression at rates significantly higher than their non-latino peers. This study attempted to determine possible reasons for the disparity. Researchers interviewed 130 Latino high school students attending one Los Angeles area high school. About half self-identified as Central American; half Mexican. Survey questions addressed acculturation, family factors, gender role beliefs and depression. Subjects were asked about both their own beliefs, attitudes and experiences, and those of their parents. Analysis of the data revealed that, particularly among girls, gender role discrepancy was associated with higher rates of depression.

Abstract: Estadísticas sobre las tendencias de tratamiento entre las mujeres hispanoamericanas y las comparaciones con las mujeres no latinas. Estas mujeres son un poco menos probables que requieran o necesiten tratamiento de abuso de sustancias que otras mujeres; conforman el 14% de la población femenina, pero representan sólo el 10% de las admisiones a tratamiento. El abuso de opiáceo es la más comúnmente reportada droga principal, en comparación con el abuso del alcohol para la población general. También son típicamente más jóvenes. Las estadísticas específicas varían según el país de origen. (Mexicana, puertorriqueña, etc).///Statistics on treatment trends among Hispanic-American women, and comparisons with non-Latina women. These women are slightly less likely to require or need substance abuse treatment than other women; they make up 14% of the female population, but account for only 10% of treatment admissions. Opiate abuse is the most commonly reported primary drug, compared with alcohol abuse for the general population. They are also typically younger. Specific statistics vary with country of origin.

Abstract: Las mujeres hispanas/latinas son menos propensas a fumar que las mujeres blancas y negras no hispanas. (Aproximadamente el 11% de las mujeres hispanas son fumadores en la actualidad, en comparación con el 23% de las blancas y 18% de las negras). Las tasas de tabaquismo entre las mujeres hispanas embarazadas son aun menores (2,7%, en comparación con el 14% de las mujeres blancas y 8% de las mujeres negras). Las tasas también varían con el país de origen, las mujeres puertorriqueñas fuman mucho más a menudo que las mujeres de origen mexicano o cubano. Aunque las tasas de tabaquismo son generalmente bajas en esta población, son considerablemente más altas que en los países de origen, donde fumar es extremadamente infrecuente entre las mujeres. Este estudio se centró en los niveles de aculturación entre las mujeres hispanoamericanas para determinar si influye en las tasas de tabaquismo. Los datos fueron tomados de “the Latina Gestational Diabetes Study” y miró 1231 embarazadas hispanoamericanas viviendo en Massachusetts durante un período de 5 años entre 2000 y 2004. Los sujetos eran jóvenes en su mayoría, de bajos ingresos, en el Programa Medicaid y tenía educación secundaria o más abajo. Aproximadamente la mitad eran extranjeras o nacidas en Puerto Rico, y 66% hablaban principalmente inglés. El 21% de las mujeres en el estudio reportaron fumar durante el embarazo. Las mujeres nacidas en los EE.UU. que hablaba principalmente inglés fueron casi tres veces más propensas a fumar que las mujeres nacidas en el extranjero o en Puerto Rico que preferían hablar en español. Estos resultados indican que la aculturación está fuertemente correlacionada con el aumento de las tasas de tabaquismo, y apunta a una particular necesidad de programas de educación y para dejar de fumar dirigidos a esta población en particular.//Hispanic-American women are less likely to smoke than non-Hispanic white and black women. (An estimated 11% of Hispanic women are current smokers, compared to 23% of whites and 18% of blacks.) Smoking rates among pregnant Hispanic women are even lower (2.7%, compared with 14% of white women and 8% of black women.) Rates also vary with country of origin, with Puerto Rican women smoking much more often than women of Mexican or Cuban backgrounds. While smoking rates are generally low among this population, they are considerably higher than in the countries of origin, where smoking is extremely uncommon among women. This study looked at levels of acculturation among Hispanic-American women to determine if it influences smoking rates. Data was taken from the Latina Gestational Diabetes Study, and looked at 1231 pregnant Hispanic-American women living in Massachusetts over a 5 year period between 2000-2004. Most subjects were young, low income, on medicaid and had high school educations or below. Approximately half were foreign or Puerto Rican born, and 66% were primarily English speaking. 21% of of the women in the study reported smoking during pregnancy. U.S. born women who primarily spoke English were nearly three times as likely to smoke as foreign or Puerto Rican born women who preferred to speak Spanish. These results indicate that acculturation is strognly correlated with increased rates of smoking, and point to a particular need for education and cessation programs targeted at this particular population.

Abstract: Durante el año 2000, las adolescentes hispanoamericanas (latinas) estaban en mayor riesgo de suicidio que sus pares no hispanas. Las niñas hispanas nacidas en los Estados Unidos estaban en mayor riesgo que las nacidas fuera de Estados Unidos Entre las no hispanas jóvenes, alrededor del 16% de las niñas corrían el riesgo de suicidio en el año 2000, en comparación con el 18% de las niñas hispanas. Aunque no está claro por qué este grupo tiene tasas tan altas de suicidios, las relaciones familiares tensas debido a las diferencias culturales pueden ser un factor. Aproximadamente un tercio de las niñas en riesgo de suicidio recibió tratamiento de salud mental.///During the year 2000, Hispanic-American adolescent girls were at higher risk for suicide than their non-Hispanic peers. U.S. born Hispanic girls were at higher risk than those born outside the U.S. Among non-Hispanic youth, about 16% of girls were at risk for suicide in 2000, compared with 18% of Hispanic girls. While it's unclear why this group has such high suicide rates, strained family relationships due to cultural differences may be a factor. About one third of girls at risk for suicide received mental health treatment.

Abstract: En este estudio, 378 empobrecidas mujeres afroamericanas y latinas fueron encuestadas sobre el consumo de drogas y prácticas sexuales. Las mujeres, reclutadas de albergues para personas son hogar y programas de tratamiento de drogas, fueron todas usuarias de drogas Intravenosas o parejas sexuales de usuarios de drogas Intravenosas o ambos. Las mujeres que no utilizaban drogas IV usaban de otras drogas. El uso del condón era infrecuente entre los sujetos, con 85% reportando que habían tenido relaciones sexuales sin protección durante los últimos 6 meses. Compartir agujas también se informó de más de 1/3 de los sujetos. Razones para no usar condones variaron entre la mujer afroamericana, altamente aculturada, y la menos aculturada latina. Las razones más comunes incluyen la creencia de que su pareja no era VIH +, creencia que no puede transmitir VIH a sus parejas, falta de habilidad en el uso de condones, falta de acceso a condones, aversión personal del uso de ellos, no pensar en su uso cuando estaba elevada y malestar con /incapacidad para discutir o negociar el uso del condón con su pareja. Algunas mujeres, especialmente algunas mujeres afroamericanas, estaban con la esperanza de quedar embarazada. Barreras para usar aguja limpia/nueva incluyeron simplemente no tener una aguja,, necesidad de ocultar la aguja y carecer de recursos /facilidades para desinfectarlas. Los investigadores discuten formas en que se podría promover entre la población el uso del condón y el uso seguro de la aguja.///In this study, 378 impoverished African-American and Latina women were surveyed about drug use and sexual practices. The women, recruited from homeless shelters and drug-treatment programs, were all IV drug users or sexual partners of IV drug users or both. Women who didnt use IV drugs themselves did use other drugs. Condom use was infrequent among the subjects, with 85% reporting that they had had unprotected sex during the past 6 months. Needle sharing was also reported by over 1/3rd of the subjects. Reasons given for not using condoms varied between African-American, highly acculturated and less acculturated Latina woman. Most common reasons given included the belief that their partner wasnt HIV+, belief that they could not transmit HIV to their partners, lack of skill in using condoms, lack of access to condoms, personal dislike of using them, not thinking about use when high, and discomfort with /inability to discuss or negotiate condom use with their partner. Some women, particularly some African-American women, were hoping to become pregnant. Barriers to clean/new needle use included simply not having a needle, needing to hide the needle, and lacking the supplies/facilities to disinfect them. Researchers discuss ways in which condom use and safe-needle use might be promoted among this population.

Abstract: Este estudio exploró conocimientos y percepciones sobre el VIH/SIDA y la incidencia de comportamientos sexuales de alto riesgo entre mujeres negras e hispano-americanas pobres. Se consideró también el papel de los niveles de aculturación entre los sujetos hispanoamericanos. Los sujetos de encuesta incluyeron 918 mujeres afroamericanas, 142 mujeres latinas muy aculturadas y 142 y 113 mujeres latinas poco aculturados. Todos los sujetos eran usuarios de drogas y parejas sexuales de usuarios de drogas Intravenosas. La encuesta confirma los resultados de anteriores investigaciones --el conocimiento no necesariamente influye en el comportamiento; aunque que la mayoría de las mujeres era consciente de los riesgos de relaciones sexuales, uso de drogas Intravenosas, compartir agujas, etc., con frecuencia eran incapaces o poco dispuestas a poner ese conocimiento en práctica. Las altas tasas de uso de drogas Intravenosas y los bajos niveles de conocimiento entre las mujeres latinas poco aculturadas, es especialmente importante para el desarrollo de programas educativos culturalmente adecuados para esta población./// This study explored knowledge and perceptions about HIV/AIDS, and the incidence of high risk sexual behaviors among impoverished Black and Hispanic-American women. The role of acculturation levels among the Hispanic-American subjects was also considered. Survey subjects included 918 African-American women, 142 high-acculturated Latina women and 113 low-acculturated Latina women. All subjects were drug users and/or sexual partners of IV drug users. The survey confirms findings of earlier research -- knowledge does not necessarily influence behavior; while most women were aware of the risks of unprotected sex, IV drug use, sharing needles, etc., they frequently were unable or unwilling to put that knowledge into practice. High rates of IV drug use and low levels of knowledge among low-acculturated Latina women makes it especially important to develop culturally appropriate education programs for this population.
