New online toolkit aims to eliminate disparities and enhance mental health service delivery to Hispanics

The National Resource Center for Hispanic Mental Health (NRCHMH) recently published an online toolkit, Enhancing Mental Health Service Delivery to Hispanics: An Online Toolkit for Eliminating Disparities. This resource consists of various print, video and audio resources designed to assist mental health agency administrators and their governing leadership, as well as direct service providers, to best attract, engage and serve Hispanics in a culturally and linguistically competent manner. When utilized collectively, the resources can serve as valuable tools for eliminating the array of disparities that exist for Hispanic-Americans/Latinos in need of mental health care by increasing understanding of the importance of addressing and enhancing organizations' and direct service providers' cultural competence to meet the needs of Hispanics — and, more importantly, how to achieve these goals. The toolkit is available on the National Resource Center for Hispanic Mental Health website; a link is provided under the tab labeled "Online Toolkit" on the home page.
