The Horn: Stressed out by finals? Mental health needs of Asian Americans assessed

University of Texas at AustinDepending on the college, many students have likely either just wrapped up their finals or are just getting started.

No doubt this is a stressful time for many who would rather be thinking about their holiday plans than sticking their nose in their Chem 100 book.

The Horn reports that the University of Texas at Austin recently completed a survey of over 3 thousand Asian American students to assess their mental health needs.

The fear of the Asian F can be overwhelming for some.

“This survey is actually one of the very initial steps that we’re taking to try to identify the needs of Asian American students on campus” staff psychologist and Asian American Outreach chair, Mona Ghosheh said. “We wanted to better understand who is in that Asian American group and who identifies with that just wanted to get a better idea of what the Asian American population looks like.”

More than a dozen different sub groups of Asian Americans have so far participated in the survey. Asian Americans make up 20 percent of the UT Austin campus.

“Some groups may not even come into the counseling center so going out there provides some interface as opposed to little or no interface,”   said Jane Morgan Bost of the Counseling & Mental Health Center.
