Social and Economic Factors Behind Mental Health Disorders Among Asian American Women (2016)

Source: BU Today

Professor Hyeouk “Chris” Hahm and I had a chance to speak with Rich Barlow (BU Today) about the book chapter that I had an honor to co-author. The chapter is an attempt to understand contextual factors that affect the parents of Asian American women with a history of self-harm and suicidal attempts. The chapter concludes that the parents demonstrate common socio-economic backgrounds, such as having one or more health concern(s), marital discord and traumatic experience(s) in their country of origin.
