The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) serves more than 25% of full-time Hispanic and Latino students, classifying it as a Hispanic-serving Institution. In fact, 58.6% of UTSA’s currently enrolled students identify as Hispanic or Latino. Sensitivity and knowledge of students’ cultural identities, values, and experiences are central to supporting their psychological well-being and journey through university life. The National Hispanic and Latino Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (NHL-MHTTC) will host a 2-part virtual workshop with the goal of discussing and addressing the efforts of its academic staff and leaders on how to support Hispanic Latinx student's well-being and success at the University of Texas at San Antonio. This technical assistance offering will describe and discuss the mental health needs of Hispanic and Latinx students through an understanding of their cultural backgrounds, values, characteristics, and contexts. It will also provide an opportunity to develop ideas around the practices and services that allow for more culturally grounded spaces and opportunities for engagement with Hispanic and Latinx students.
