Description

Despite similar vulnerability to mental illness as the general population, adults within the Latinx community often do not receive treatment for severe mental illnesses. Latinx communities face health disparities and lack of access to mental healthcare due to language barriers, lack of health insurance coverage, lack of cultural competence from healthcare practitioners, and more. It is essential to promote positive mental health practices within the Latinx community and to educate healthcare practitioners in cultural competence.

Latinx Mental Health: From Surviving to Thriving focuses on the research and practical experiences that foster cultural resilience and strength. Rather than advocating for an assimilative model of coping, this book focuses on the way that Latinx issues can be studied and addressed in a culturally and linguistically appropriate way. This publication seeks to inspire a new generation of mental health researchers and practitioners to engage with the Latinx population in a strength-based way. Covering topics such as LGBTQ+ Latinxs, health disparities, and intergenerational trauma, this premier reference work is an excellent resource for psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, sociologists, government officials, healthcare professionals, students and faculty of higher education, librarians, researchers, and academicians.
