Ethnic minority youth inhabit worlds that put them at specific risk for victimization, bullying, and suicide. The authors address cultural factors associated with being a racial or ethnic minority that elevate risks for youth of color, and discuss causes and correlates that are distinctly associated with different ethnoracial groups. They examine these predictive factors and the disparities in prevalence rates from a social-ecological viewpoint, detailing the impact of the nested contexts in which youth of color navigate in order to highlight important individual, family, peer, and community-level factors that are relevant to suicide, victimization, and bullying. The authors conclude with practical policy suggestions for parents and teachers, physical and mental health providers, community agencies, and policy makers to reduce bullying and suicide in ethnic minority youth.
