Mental Health Issues Facing the HispanicLatino Community

1. The Hispanic community in the U.S. encompasses a wide variety of ethnic groups, hailing from Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Spain, and Latin America. From a historic perspective, people of Mexican descent (and Native Americans) were the first to settle in what is now the United States. For centuries, the Hispanic population grew exponentially as groups from other Spanish-speaking countries immigrated to America. These changes, coupled with the number of U.S.-born children of immigrant parents, account fortoday’s population of 60.6 millionand also explains why Hispanics are the fastest-growing ethnic group in the country. Today, an estimated 45 percent of the Hispanic population is foreign-born while 31 percent are second-generation, U.S.-born. Consequently, many of the mental health issues facing the Hispanic/Latino community derive from the challenges foreign-born Latinos face versus the challenges U.S.-born Latinos face.
