Expanding Culturally Responsive Mental Health Care: Diversity among Hispanic/Latinx Youth and Families
Providence, RI 02903
Ethnic, spiritual, racial, gender, sexual orientation, and values/tradition all intersect and need to be pondered. Hispanic/Latinx families have higher barriers to access care than Non-Hispanic/Latinx families in many instances due to the higher frequency of poor social determinants of health.

This conference will be focused on helping mental health professionals: (1) integrate culturally responsive strategies into their mental health services practices, (2) apply an intersectional perspective of care with Latinx families in which cultural (e.g., values, spirituality), ethnic, gender, and sexual identities are considered, and (3) reflect on how social determinants of health may be affecting their own patients and assess individual and systemic possible solutions.
