21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: Guided by a community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach, the purpose of this pilot was to assess stressors and depressive symptoms among a rural population of low-income Latino mothers and children and to identify culturally appropriate interventions that can be further developed and sustained by the community. Aims were as follows: 1) Describe collaborative partnerships with rural Latino community leaders that informed the process of recruiting participants and collecting culturally relevant data about mental health needs of Latino mothers/children in a rural community in North Florida; 2) Describe stressors, depressive symptoms, and culturally appropriate approaches for addressing them among target population (children were ages 8 to17 years). Methods: This exploratory-descriptive study was based on CBPR principles. Two samples and strategies for recruitment were used: convenience and snowball. The Community Advisory Board (CAB) was composed of Latino community leaders (N=8) involved in different organizations/agencies in Levy County/FL (CAB partnership still active in following studies). Several other instruments were used to collect mental health data on rural Latino mothers and children. Results: Content analysis from CAB scribes' notes revealed the following categories: Community Knowledge, Caring for the Community, Community Members' Roles in Future Studies and Groups Dynamics. Descriptive statistics will be presented for 1) Women (N=48): Demographic Questionnaire-W, Patient Health Questionnaire-Depression Scale (PHQ-9) and the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (SES) and  2) Latino children (ages 8-17, N=48): Demographic Questionnaire-C, the Children's Depression Inventory (CDI), and the Piers-Harris Children's Self-Concept Scale, Second Edition (PH2). A significant stressor identified in mothers and children was the experience of social isolation. Conclusion: CBPR studies present new opportunities for recruitment of hard-to-reach populations. This study generated essential data for development of a larger CBPR study to address social isolation with culturally appropriate strategies and to promote mental health among Latino mothers and children in rural areas.
