1. Granillo, M. Teresa. Understanding the Mental Health Needs of Latina College Students: Exploring Issues of Prevalence, Measurement, and Service Utilization for Mental Health and Substance Use Problems among a National Sample.

Degree: PhD, Social Work and Psychology, 2011, University of Michigan

Latina college students experience significant stress and psychological distress in the college campus context. They report higher rates of depression and anxiety than Latino and non-Latina female students. Mental health problems interfere with academic success and Latina report the lowest rate of college completion among female college students. It is essential that the mental health needs of this at-risk population be addressed. Using a national dataset of college student mental health, three studies were conducted to gain a better understanding of the mental health needs of Latina college students. Study one found that Latinas (N=1,274) were more likely than White females (N=9,797) to experience depression and less likely to use substances. Social support and religiosity were protective factors and institutional dissatisfaction and discrimination were risk factors for mental health and substance use problems. However, there were differences between Latinas and Whites in the way that these factors influenced these problems. The second study explored the structure and function of an existing depression assessment instrument (Patient Health Questionnaire-9) among Latina (N=1,455) and White female college students (N=15,299). Through a series of factor analyses it was confirmed that the PHQ-9 was best utilized as a two-factor measure of depression among Latina and White female college students and there was no evidence of a construct bias. The third study examined the rates and associations of mental health service utilization among Latina college students (N=1,876) and found an unmet need for services among this population. Less than a third of Latinas who reported experiencing depression, anxiety, eating disorder symptoms, suicidal ideation, or substance use problems had used mental health services. Latinas who perceived they had a problem, who had positive attitudes and beliefs about services, and who were more religious were more likely to have received services. Findings from these three studies suggest that Latina college students are an at-risk group for mental health and substance use problems. Increasing mental health literacy among Latina students as well as service providers, faculty, and administration may help to increase detection and receipt of appropriate treatment for mental health and substance use problems.

2. Mowbray, Orion Peter. Social Network Ties and Goal Formation: Correlates of Treatment Entry and Reduced Alcohol use Following Treatment Completion.

Degree: PhD, Social Work and Psychology, 2013, University of Michigan

While effective treatment for alcohol use disorders (AUDs) exists, only about 28% of individuals suffering from AUDs seek help for problems (Cohen, Feinn, Arias, & Kranzler, 2007). The National Institute of Health strategic initiative of systems-thinking approaches to health (USDHHS, 2010b) suggests that social network ties may reveal important keys to how persons experiencing health problems, including AUDs, seek treatment. Additionally, approximately 60% of individuals in treatment for AUDs will relapse within the first year following alcohol treatment (Maisto, Pollock, Cornelius, Lynch, & Martin, 2003; Whitford, Widner, Mellick, & Elkins, 2009). One mechanism of change that could reduce relapse of alcohol use may be the goals individuals adopt upon entry to treatment. The objectives of this dissertation are 1) identify the characteristics of social network ties among persons with experiencing AUDs, 2) examine how social network ties influence treatment use for alcohol dependence, and 3) to examine whether goals individuals adopt concerning drinking in early treatment influence subsequent alcohol use following treatment completion. Objectives 1 and 2 examine wave 2 of the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions. Objective 3, examines the Life-Transitions Study (LTS) (Robinson et al., 2011). Results suggest that social networks of individuals with AUDs are smaller in size and less diverse. Additionally, social network ties of individuals with AUD play a moderating role in seeking treatment such that individuals with high level of alcohol consumption and more social ties are more likely to seek treatment than individuals with high levels of alcohol consumption and few network ties. Finally, controlling for differences in who adopts a goal of abstinence from alcohol, individuals who adopt a goal of abstinence at treatment entry are likely to have more percent days abstinence and more days since last consuming alcohol compared to individuals who adopt a non-abstinence goal. These findings offer several implications for social work practice including the utilization of social networks as a resource among individuals with AUDs, the identification of high risk AUD groups least likely to seek treatment, and risk factors associated with higher levels of alcohol use following treatment for AUDs.
