DEPRESSION AMONG IMMIGRANT YOUTH 2 Introduction In the United States of the America, the outcomes of immigration on the country budget and society have widely been discussed as new waves of immigrants continue to increase in the country. Essentially ignored but a very important issue to consider is the wellbeing of the immigrant’s youths. Very little is acknowledged about the course of adaption that these youth must steer or the distinctive psychological and educational concerns that arise as they try to adapt to new language, values, and new society. It was thought that immigrant youth would acclimatize to their new surroundings with comparative easiness, but in real sense, the teenagers have long wriggled to see their desires accomplished.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
