The purpose of this project was to develop a project that focuses on providing mental health access to monolingual Spanish speaking adult Latinos. The goal of the project was to improve mental health access to this population. There is documented research that illustrates that Latinos continue to have low access to mental health services. An extensive review of literature was conducted to examine the reasons why Latinos have low access rates to mental health services. Mental health outreach will be provided in Spanish by promotoras in a culturally competent manner. The target cities for this project are in South East Los Angeles in Los Angeles County. Actual submission or funding of this program was not a requirement for successful completion of this project.
