Latino Mental Health
The Latino Mental Health Program offers consultations in psychopharmacology, cognitive neurology, brief psychotherapy and neuropsychological evaluations. With an inter-departmental team of bilingual and bicultural neurologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and community resource specialists, the program provides services based on an understanding of the Latino culture and community in the United States. The Latino Mental Health Program is part of the Latino 360 Initiative, a program facilitating interdisciplinary referrals for our Spanish-speaking patients. It is also a training site for psychiatry residents, psychology and social work interns who want to increase their knowledge and skills in culturally oriented health care.
