Cultural Factors Influencing Suicidal Ideation and Behaviors in Puerto Ricans: An Integrative Review

Cultural Factors Influencing Suicidal Ideation and Behaviors in Puerto Ricans: An Integrative Review CHAPTER 9 Cultural Factors Influencing Suicidal Ideation and Behaviors in Puerto Ricans An Integrative Review Griselle Batista Estrada, Rick Zoucha, and Yovanska Duarté-Vélez ABSTRACT Deaths by suicide are the 10th leading cause of death for Latinxs in the United States. Given the heterogeneity of the Latinx population, additional focus on Latinx mental health is needed at the subgroup level. Puerto Ricans comprise the second largest Latinx subgroup in the nation. Their American citizenship, ethnohistory, and unique migration patterns to and from the U.S. mainland point to the need for further understanding of the impact of culture on Puerto Rican mental health. Guided by Leininger’s Culture Care Theory, an integrative review examined cultural factors influencing suicidal ideation and behaviors in Puerto Ricans in the United States and in Puerto Rico; a total of 24 articles from the past 10 years were reviewed. There is a dearth of current research literature address- ing suicide and suicide prevention in Puerto Ricans, particularly those living in the continental United States. Further focus on the cultural and social factors that impact suicide risk is warranted. Advancing the evidence regarding the culture care needs of Puerto Ricans and other Latinx subgroups can guide future research http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Annual Review of Nursing Research Springer Publishing

Abstract

CHAPTER 9 Cultural Factors Influencing Suicidal Ideation and Behaviors in Puerto Ricans An Integrative Review Griselle Batista Estrada, Rick Zoucha, and Yovanska Duarté-Vélez ABSTRACT Deaths by suicide are the 10th leading cause of death for Latinxs in the United States. Given the heterogeneity of the Latinx population, additional focus on Latinx mental health is needed at the subgroup level. Puerto Ricans comprise the second largest Latinx subgroup in the nation. Their American citizenship, ethnohistory, and unique migration patterns to and from the U.S. mainland point to the need for further understanding of the impact of culture on Puerto Rican mental health. Guided by Leininger’s Culture Care Theory, an integrative review examined cultural factors influencing suicidal ideation and behaviors in Puerto Ricans in the United States and in Puerto Rico; a total of 24 articles from the past 10 years were reviewed. There is a dearth of current research literature address- ing suicide and suicide prevention in Puerto Ricans, particularly those living in the continental United States. Further focus on the cultural and social factors that impact suicide risk is warranted. Advancing the evidence regarding the culture care needs of Puerto Ricans and other Latinx subgroups can guide future research
