Mental Health Mini Talks: Latinx Mental Health

In Arizona, almost one third of the population is Latinx or Hispanic. Mental health and mental illness are often stigmatized topics in Latinx/Hispanic communities, compounding the existing institutional and systemic barriers that already limit access to mental health services. This iteration of our Mental Health Mini-Talks will help identify factors that impact Latinx mental health and will address ways health professionals can support this population.

Featured Speaker

  • Karina Duenas, MSW
    Resilience and Mental Health in Latinx Communities
  • Anna Carolina Ortiz, MPH
    Youth Mental Health in Action
  • Denise Rodríguez Esquivel, PhD, DBSM
    Sleep Health in Latinx Communities
  • Francisco Moreno, MD
    Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Stigma in the Hispanic Community
