ICH Staff Receive Writing Award for Article on Asian Student Mental Health

by |

According to research by Drs. Lisa Arsenault, Lise Fried, and Karen Hacker of ICH and Dr. Suzan Song, Medical Director and Pediatric & Adult Psychiatrist of Asian Americans for Community Involvement in California, risk factors for depression amongst Asian youth can vary from those that place Caucasian youth at risk. A recent article publishing these findings, titled “Asian Student Depression in American High Schools: Differences in Risk Factors,” has been selected by The Journal of School Nursing Editorial Advisory Board for their annual Scholarly Writing Award. This award recognizes excellence in writing as well as significant contribution to school nursing through providing an evidence base for improving school nursing practice. The authors hope that this article will help inform school-based health provider screening for depression amongst Asian students in particular.
