Abstract: Este estudio examinó la presencia de y el conocimiento de los factores de riesgo del VIH entre una muestra de mujeres puertorriqueñas con enfermedades mentales graves. Los datos fueron tomados de un estudio más amplio sobre el VIH y las mujeres hispanas. Se entrevistó dos veces durante un período de dos años a 53 mujeres puertorriqueñas con SMIs (depresión, trastorno bipolar, esquizofrenia) que viven en el área de Cleveland. También fueron 'perfiladas a como fueron en sus vidas diarias. 31 de los sujetos eran usuarios actuales de sustancia, con alcohol y marihuana como la droga más comúnmente usada.. Algunas mujeres eran usuarias habituales mientras que otras la utilizaban solo raramente. La violencia de pareja era común, reportado por 2/3 de los sujetos. Aunque el conocimiento básico de los factores de riesgo del VIH era usual (la mayoría entendió, por ejemplo, que el agua no era suficiente para limpiar las agujas), muchos continuaron participando en actividades de alto riesgo, incluyendo relaciones sexuales sin protección con parejas potencialmente infectados y compartir agujas.///This study examined the presence of and knowledge of HIV risk factors among a sample of Puerto Rican women with severe mental illnesses. Data was taken from a larger study on HIV and Hispanic women. 53 Puerto Rican women with SMIs (depression, bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia) living in the Cleveland area were interviewed twice over a two year period. They were also 'shadowed' as they went about their daily lives. 31 of the subjects were current substance users, with alcohol and marijuana the most commonly used drugs. Some women were regular users while others used only rarely. Intimate partner violence was common, reported by 2/3rds of subjects. While basic knowledge of HIV risk factors was usual (most understood, for example, that plain water was not sufficient for cleaning needles), many continued to engage in high risk activities, including unprotected intercourse with potentially infected partners and needle sharing.

Abstract: En este artículo, los autores describen la investigación y los pasos para desarrollar un programa de tratamiento del abuso de drogas culturalmente apropiadas y eficaces para los adolescentes hispanos/latinos. Reconociendo que el uso de drogas, las enfermedades de transmisión sexual, la depresión y la ideación suicida son desproporcionadamente comunes entre esta población, los investigadores se centraron en la creación de un programa de terapia familiar que abordara las necesidades y tensiones únicas que enfrentan estos jóvenes. El programa, conocido como “Culturally Informed and Flexible Family-Based Treatment for Adolescents” (CIFFTA) [Tratamiento Culturalmente Informado y Flexible Basado en la Familia para Adolescentes] fue probado inicialmente en 145 jóvenes hispanos con edades entre 14-17 años de una variedad de orígenes. La mayoría eran masculinos y de bajos ingresos y aunque el tratamiento se centró en temas de abuso de sustancias, la mayoría exhibió también otros problemas conductuales y psicológicos. Aunque es demasiado pronto para saber cuán efectivo será el programa a largo plazo, las primeras evaluaciones indican que tiene muchos aspectos positivos, incluyendo tasas de retención altas y fuertes alianzas entre terapeuta, adolescente y padres.///In this article, authors describe the research and steps used to develop a culturally appropriate and effective drug abuse treatment program for Hispanic adolescents. Recognizing that drug use, sexually transmitted diseases, depression and suicide ideation are disproportionately common among this population, researchers focused on creating a family-based therapy program that would address the unique needs and stresses faced by these young people. The program, known as Culturally Informed and Flexible Family-Based Treatment for Adolescents (CIFFTA) was initially tested on 145 Hispanic youth ages 14-17 from a variety of backgrounds. Most were male and low income and while the treatment focused on substance abuse issues, most also exhibited other behavioral and psychological problems. While it is too soon to know just how effective the program will be in the long term, early evaluations suggest that it has many positive aspects, including high retention rates and strong alliances between therapist, adolescent and parent.

Abstract: Aunque los hispanoamericanos se quejan de los síntomas psicóticos en tasas que superan las de otros grupos étnicos, son menos probables cumplir con criterios de diagnóstico para un desorden real. En este estudio de 2500 adultos latinos, los investigadores encontraron que mientras el 9% de los sujetos informaron haber experimentado síntomas psicóticos durante toda su vida, sólo el 7% de los informes de tales síntomas cumplen los criterios de diagnóstico para un importante trastorno psicótico (depresión con psicosis, trastorno bipolar, trastorno de delirio). Los síntomas reportados incluyen alucinaciones, pensamientos de inserción/extracción y delirios de control. Aunque que muy pocas veces se encontraron trastornos psicóticos, muchos sujetos reportando síntomas cumplían criterios de otros trastornos psiquiátricos y/o del comportamiento (depresión, abuso de sustancias, ansiedad, etc.). Los autores discuten factores demográficos, culturales y otros que pueden conducir tanto a los síntomas como a la interpretación psicótica.///While Hispanic-Americans complain of psychotic symptoms at rates that exceed those of other ethnic groups, they are less likely meet diagnostic criteria for an actual disorder. In this study of 2500 Latino adults, researchers found that while 9% of subjects reported having experienced psychotic symptoms during their lifetime, only 7% of those reporting such symptoms met diagnostic criteria for a major psychotic disorder (depression with psychosis, bipolar disorder, delusion disorder). Symptoms reported included hallucinations, thought insertion/withdrawal and delusions of control. While psychotic disorders were found very infrequently, many subjects reporting symptoms did meet criteria for other psychiatric and/or behavioral disorders (depression, substance abuse, anxiety, etc.) Authors discuss demographic, cultural and other factors which may lead to both the symptoms and to the psychotic interpretation.

Abstract: El documento aborda la investigación de algunos de los muchos factores (culturales, ambientales y personales) que influyen en las decisiones sobre el uso del tabaco entre las minorías étnicas. (Afroamericanos, hispanoamericanos/latinos, asiático-americanos y nativos americanos). Entre los factores identificados por los investigadores están niveles educativos más bajos, múltiples barreras al tratamiento (falta de conocimiento sobre los servicios disponibles, problemas de lenguaje y barreras culturales) y la creencia entre algunos grupos que fumar es deseable o de hombres. Los investigadores confiaron principalmente en grupos focales y entrevistas para la recopilación de datos.///Document discusses research into some of the many factors (cultural, evironmental and personal) that influence decisions about tobacco use among ethnic minorities.(African Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Asian-Americans and Native Americans.) Among the factors identified by researchers are lower educational levels, multiple barriers to treatment (lack of awareness of available services, language issues, and cultural barriers), and the belief among some groups that smoking is desirable or macho. Researchers primarily relied on focus groups and interviews in compiling data.

Abstract: Usando datos del estudio nacional asiático americano y Latino 2002-2003, los investigadores examinaron la frecuencia de uso de servicios de salud mental por los americanos asiáticos y en comparación con esas cifras a la población en su conjunto. A los sujetos se les preguntó sobre los servicios recibidos de los profesionales de salud mental especializados, médicos, líderes espirituales y religiosos, trabajadores sociales, etc. 8.6% de los sujetos del estudio informó que buscó o recibió servicios de salud mental durante el año pasado, con el número cada vez mayor al 34% entre aquellos con síntomas de un probable diagnóstico. Estas cifras son significativamente menores que las de la población en general, en la que las cifras son aproximadamente 18% y 41%. Los sujetos estadounidenses de nacimiento eran más propensos a haber recibido servicios que los inmigrantes. También eran más propensos a estar satisfechos con los servicios recibidos. Cuando se desglosaron por origen nacional, étnico, los chinos americanos fueron los menos propensos a haber buscado servicios y los vietnamitas eran los más probables.///Using data from the 2002-2003 National Latino and Asian American Study, researchers examined the frequency of mental-health- services use by Asian-Americans, and compared those figures to the population as a whole. Subjects were asked about services received from specialized mental health professionals, medical doctors, spiritual/religious leaders, social workers, etc. 8.6% of survey subjects reported having sought or received mental health services during the past year, with the number increasing to 34% among those with symptoms of a probable diagnosis. These numbers are significantly lower than those in the general population, in which figures are roughly 18% and 41%. U.S. born subjects were more likely to have received services than immigrants. They were also more likely to be satisfied with the services received. When broken down by national/ethnic origin, Chinese Americans were the least likely to have sought services, and Vietnamese were the most likely.

Abstract: Los investigadores analizaron la asociación entre la aculturación y la incidencia de depresión, ansiedad y trastornos por abuso de sustancias tanto en los nacidos en Estados Unidos y adultos asiático-americanos inmigrantes. Los datos fueron tomados del “National Latino and Asian American Study (NLAAS)”, e incluyeron una muestra de 1600 personas. La mayoría eran nacidos en el extranjeros pero había estado en los Estados Unidos durante muchos años. Entre las mujeres, las mujeres inmigrantes eran menos propensas a tener algún trastorno mental de la salud o abuso de sustancias, mientras que entre los hombres el estatus de inmigrante se asoció con menor riesgo de abuso de sustancias. El dominio del idioma inglés, sin embargo, se asoció con un menor riesgo de trastornos de salud mental. La edad en inmigración y años en los Estados Unidos no mostró ninguna asociación consistente con cualquier trastorno.///Researchers looked at the association between acculturation and the incidence of depression, anxiety and substance abuse disorders in both U.S. born and immigrant Asian-American adults. Data was taken from the National Latino and Asian American Study (NLAAS), and included a sample of 1600 individuals. A majority were foreign born but had been in the U.S. for many years. Among women, immigrant women were less likely to have any mental health or substance abuse disorder, while among men immigrant status was associated only with lower risk of substance abuse. English language proficiency, however, was associated with a lower risk of mental health disorders. Age at immigration and years in the U.S. did not show any consistant association with any disorder.

Abstract: En este estudio, los investigadores encuestaron a cerca de 1600 veteranos hispanoamericanos (latinos) y americanos nativos en del suroeste y centro-norte de Estados Unidos acerca de sus hábitos y patrones de juegos, así como el uso de alcohol/drogas y problemas de salud mental. El Casino para jugar estaba a disposición de los sujetos en ambas regiones. Aproximadamente el 8% de los sujetos cumplieron los criterios para la ludopatía, con cifras similares en ambas regiones. Los americanos nativos eran mucho más propensos que los hispanoamericanos a tener problemas para apostar, y las mujeres fueron ligeramente más propensas que los hombres. (Aunque el número de mujeres era muy pequeño, dificultando los juicios estadísticos). Otros factores asociados con tasas más altas de juego patológico incluyó más educación, grupo de edad 40-60 años y el uso de sustancias o tener trastorno de salud mental.///In this study, researchers surveyed about 1600 Hispanic-American and Native American veterans living in the Southwestern and North Central U.S. about their gambling habits and patterns, as well as alcohol/drug use and mental health issues. Casino gambling was available to the subjects in both regions. Approximately 8% of subjects met the criteria for pathological gambling, with figures similar in both regions. Native Americans were much more likely than Hispanic Americans to have gambling problems, and women were slightly more likely than men. (Though the number of women was very small, making statistical judgements difficult.) Other factors associated with higher rates of pathological gambling included more education, 40-60 year age group, and having a substance use or mental health disorder.

Nearly 60% of subjects who were regular users of alcohol or other drugs as adolescents met criteria for a SUD in adulthood, compared with 26% of those who abstained during adolescence. Little association was found between adolescent substance use and adult mental health disorders.
