This study focuses on the impact of acculturation and socioeconomic status on Mexican American attitudes towards mental health care. At issue is the extent to which acculturation and socioeconomic status predict Mexican American attitudes toward mental health care. The results of this study suggest that acculturation, not socioeconomic status, is predictive of attitudes towards mental health care. Accordingly, efforts should be made to develop services that are culturally compatible with the Mexican American community.
