My topic is Anxiety of Asian student in US.
Culture and Mental Health Outline: Students will complete a culture and mental health research project for the course. This project will involve choosing a mental health condition that has a culturally specific manifestation (idiom of distress or culture bound syndrome) or a mental health condition (broadly defined) that develops from, or is shaped by, a social/cultural/behavioral process. Students will complete a detailed outline of their paper and complete a final paper on their chosen topic. The outline and paper will reflect a detailed review of the literature focused on the mental health problem, a review of culturally-specific aspects of the problem, and potential (culturally appropriate) methods of addressing the problem. Example titles of projects are â€˜Globalization and farmer suicides among rural Kenyan men, â€˜The legacy of colonialism on substance abuse in the Caribbeanâ€™, or â€˜Suicide among Information Technology workers in Bangalore, Indiaâ€™.The Outline should be 4-5 pages in length, single spaced, and contain a references list with at least 5 relevant articles or books to be discussed in the presentation and final paper.
