The present study examined how mental distress of older Asian Americans is influenced by various types of life stressors and social capital. Participants who were 60 and older (n = 533) were selected from the 2015 Asian American Quality of Life survey. A high level of mental distress was observed in the sample, particularly in the Korean and Vietnamese groups. Results of multivariate analyses indicated the detrimental effects of health- and immigration-related stressors and the beneficial effects of family and community resources and suggested ways to promote their mental health and well-being.
