New Spanish-Language Mental Health Resources
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and Health and Human Services (HHS) released new resources for Spanish-language speakers and professionals who work with Latinos. These resources were developed following the June 2013 National Conference on Mental Health to encourage partners and communities across the country to work together to address mental health issues. The Toolkit for Community Conversations About Mental Health (Diálogos comunitarios acerca de la salud mental) supports communities interested in holding conversations about mental health.
