Mental health conditions can affect anyone regardless of race, gender or identity. However, how you respond to it may be different based on your cultural values and beliefs. NAMI (or the National Alliance on Mental Illness) reports more than half of Latinx young adults ages 18 to 25 with serious mental illness may not receive treatment. Welcome to this special episode focused on mental health within the Latinx community! Featuring today's host, Dr. Joan Baran with CHC colleagues and psychologists, Dr. Melina Foden and Dr. Emily Hsu. They'll explore how culture and traditions impact perceptions about mental health in Latinx families and how these influences impact seeking help when needed. We'll delve into the crucial topic of mental health among Latinx families, demystifying concepts and addressing the barriers they face when seeking help. Join us to learn how to challenge perceptions and overcome obstacles so that your family can access the care and support they deserve.
