The Health Needs Assessment project

tried to fill this gap by investigating the problem with focus
groups in eight different Asian American groups including
four underrepresented groups (underrepresented group is
defined as people who originated from the Asian countries
other than the major six Asian subgroups that are included
in the Census (Asian Indian, Chinese, Filipino, Japanese,
Korean, and Vietnamese)).
This study was a part of the Health Needs Assessment
project carried out in 2007 by The University of Maryland
School of Public Health research team in collaboration
with Center for Asian Health of Temple University, Johns
Hopkins School of Public Health, and Asian American
community leaders in Montgomery County, Maryland.
Through this project, we visited 13 AA communities
(Asian Indian, Burmese, Cambodian, Chinese, Filipino,
Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Nepali, Pakistani, Taiwanese, Thai, and Vietnamese), and held 19 focus groups with
174 participants who were age 18 and above. It was during
these focus groups that we learned that mental health was
one of the most important health concerns for community
participants, especially adolescents and young adults who
are 1.5 or 2nd generations (12 communities out of 13
communities brought up mental health as one of the top
health concerns in their communities). In response to the
importance of mental health issues to the community, our
research team performed two separate focus groups to
specifically discuss mental health concerns. Since our
Internal Review Board (IRB) approval for the initial focus
groups was only for adults (18 years old and older), we
were not able to include adolescents in these mental health
focus groups. Nevertheless, we recruited young adults (18–
30 years old) to discuss their current mental health-related
experiences as well as those of adolescent period.
Methods
Sample
We used a convenience sampling strategy to recruit young
adults from diverse Asian American communities including hard-to-reach populations. We conducted two focus
groups with 17 participants (5 males and 12 females) from
eight Asian American communities (Asian Indian, Cambodian, Chinese, Indonesian, Korean, Taiwanese, Thai, and
Vietnamese) in Montgomery County, Maryland. Eligibility
criteria were young adults between 18 and 30 years old
who lived in Montgomery County for more than six
months (Table 1). Recruiting young adult participants from
diverse communities was very challenging. Young adults
from underrepresented communities were especially difficult to reach. Student workers with existing ties to their
respective Asian communities pa
