Exploring Latino/x Mental Health Workshop Series
Latinos/x deserve culturally relevant mental health support.
In this series, we take a deeper look at the social and cultural experiences central to Latino/x culture. Personal stories and cultural knowledge are shared to better understand the power of language in defining lived experiences and how these lived experiences influence a person’s well being. Lastly, the added stress and harm caused when care strategies do not consider social and cultural factors is also explored.
