Summary or Abstract : Through the use of a theoretical stress process model and guided by ecological contextual theory and the risk and resilience framework, this study focused on the identification of culturally relevant stressors that affect the mental health of Mexican American adolescents. In addition, the study examined three competing models of how types of support (i.e., context and behavior) may operate in the relation between cultural stressors, discrimination and language hassles, with mental health symptoms. Data for this study come from the first wave of an ongoing longitudinal study investigating the role of culture and context in the lives of Mexican American families in a large metropolitan area in a southwestern state. Analyses were conducted using multi-group structural equation models. Overall, results showed direct effects of cultural stressors on mental health symptomatology across genders, such that increases in cultural stressors were positively related to males' and females' report of internalizing and externalizing symptoms. Tests of model fit indicated that Model 3, the mediated moderation model, provided the best fit to the data. As evidenced by this study, support behavior may represent a malleable target for intervention: improving families supportive behaviors could benefit the mental health of Mexican American adolescents. Additionally, because both language hassles and discrimination emerged as significant predictors within the model, results suggest that contextual changes within schools and communities that result in increased tolerance and understanding of cultural and linguistic differences would likely improve the mental health of Mexican American youth..
