Sources of stress among Midwest American Indian adults with type 2 diabetes.
Investigators analyzed focus group transcripts of American Indian adults with type 2 diabetes from five tribal communities and classified stressors using an inductive/deductive analytical approach. They identified poverty, genocide, and colonization as fundamental causes of contemporary stress and health outcomes for American Indians and concluded that stressors are generally experienced as chronic, regardless of the duration of the stressor.

Family stress and youth mental health problems: self-efficacy and future orientation mediation.
This study assessed whether future orientation and self-esteem affected the relationship between family stress and mental health problems among African American youth in predominantly low-income neighborhoods. Youths (mainly female, average age 15.83 years old) were sampled for family stress, self-esteem, future orientation, mental health and other covariates such as gender and sexual orientation. A correlation was found between future orientation and self-esteem levels and family stress and mental health problems.
