Summary of "Worry among Latinx college students: relations to anxious arousal, social anxiety, general depression, and insomnia."

Latinx young adults in college (ages 18-25 years) are at a heightened risk for health disparities and there is a need to understand individual-based characteristics that are related to such health inequalities including anxiety, depression, and sleep disturbances. The cross-sectional current study investigated the role of worry in relation to anxious arousal, social anxiety, general depression, and insomnia among Latinx college students. Participants included 401 ( = 21 years; SD =2.01; 83% female) Latinx students at a large, southwestern university. Results indicated that greater levels of worry were related to increased levels of anxious arousal, social anxiety, general depression, and insomnia. These findings were evident above and beyond variance accounted for by age, sex, and subjective social status. The current investigation suggests that elevated levels of worry among Latinx young adults may be associated with greater levels of anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
