Latinos are the largest and fastest growing ethnic minority group. However, Latinos have historically underutilized health and mental health services. The purpose of this project was to examine the Latino clients’ perspectives and helping professionals’ perspectives to encourage mutual understanding on health and mental health issues and services available in the United States. However, this project primarily focused on helping social workers in the health and mental health fields to be able to empower the Latino population and advocate for culturally responsive services. The materials gathered in this study were designed to be used by helping professionals to enhance the well-being of Latino children especially for children under the age of 5.
