As SAMHSA pivots towards having Centers of Excellence for historically underrepresented populations, our National American Indian and Alaska Native and National Hispanic and Latino MHTTCs transitioned out of our MHTTC Network as of September 29, 2023. Beginning September 30, 2023, the American Indian and Alaska Native Behavioral Health Center of Excellence and the Hispanic/Latino Behavioral Health Center of Excellence will serve as resources for behavioral health agencies to better serve and advocate for these populations.

We are grateful for the outstanding contributions of our National Population MHTTCs, and their resources remain available on our website. However, information from the archived resources below, and their respective pages, will not be maintained or updated. If you encounter a broken link, or an error message, or have further questions, please contact us and we will do our best to assist you given the developers of these resources are no longer active as part of the TTC Network.

Target Audience
Latino adults in the United States face serious mental health care disparities. A combination of person-level barriers, such as, stigma, negative attitudes toward mental health treatments, and limited mental health literacy, contribute to these inequities in mental health care. In this presentation, Dr. Cabassa will review the literature on how person-level barriers impact mental health care disparities in the Latino community. He will describe how a depression literacy tool entitled “Secret Feelings” that integrates cultural elements from the Latino community and uses an entertainment-education approach can help address these barriers to care. He will discuss the practice and research implications of using “Secret Feelings” to improve mental health care in the Latino community.

The current sociocultural climate and discourse in the United States elucidates the importance of understanding our humanity while fostering deeper cross-cultural relationships. As the nation demographically represents a multitude of cultures, our ability to engage in thoughtful and meaningful discussions on cultural issues, remains ever present. This webinar addresses why cultural humility matters in our work as service providers, the current literature on color-blind racial ideology, and implicit bias. The webinar provides insight into the importance of understanding one’s own limitations in ideologies as a way to enhance our service as cultural workers, both personally and professionally.
