Organizer

Latino/a Mental Health Providers Network

The Latino/a Mental Health Provider Network’s goal is to increase the number of culturally competent mental health professionals, resulting in the development of more readily accessible mental health services for the Latino community.

 The LMHPN strategically recruits community agencies providing mental health services to a wide variety of Latino populations, and offers comprehensive capacity-building trainings to increase their cultural competence.  Having its roots in the Center for Latino/a Mental Health at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, the network also promotes sharing resources and information about key services among member agencies. It also supports the agencies through the placement of bilingual/bicultural graduate psychology student interns and volunteers, many of whom implement valuable community projects.
