Mission Statement

The mission of the National Hispanic and Latino Mental Health Technology Transfer Center is to provide high-quality training and technical assistance to improve the capacity of the workforce serving the Hispanic and Latino communities in prevention, treatment, and recovery for behavioral health. We disseminate and support the implementation of evidence-based and promising practices to enhance service delivery, promote the growth of a diverse, culturally competent workforce, and bridge access to quality behavioral health services. We are committed to increase health equity and access to effective culturally and linguistically grounded approaches.

 

Our Goals:

  • Heighten the awareness, knowledge, and skills of the workforce to address the needs of Latinos living with mental illness.
  • Accelerate the adoption and implementation of mental health-related evidence-based and promising practices.
  • Foster regional and national alliances among culturally diverse practitioners, researchers, policymakers, family members, and consumers of mental health services.
  • Ensure the availability and delivery of publicly available, free-of-charge training and technical assistance to the mental health field providing services for Hispanics and Latinos.
