Adolescents go through a lot of change throughout their youth including an increased understanding of themselves. Within these increased understandings, adolescents are capable of resolving what ethnic-racial identity means to them. Considering this how would have a stronger resolution of ethnic-racial identity impact depressive symptoms shown in adolescent minorities? To answer this question we surveyed adolescents from Latino, Asian American, and African Americans.
