The purpose of this project was to document the need to enhance an existing program, identify a potential founding source, and write a grant to provide mental health assessments for all Latino minors, United States born or immigrants, who come into contact with Child Welfare Services of Napa County. An extensive literature review was conducted to investigate the background of the issue and the solutions that have been attempted in the past.
Children who come in contact with Child Welfare Services typically experience significant trauma due to neglect and/or various forms of abuse. Many are subsequently traumatized once again by being separated from their families and all that is familiar to them. Consequently, many are in need mental health services. It is also important to provide culturally competent services to the growing Latino community. If funded, services will be provided by a bilingual/bicultural Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
