Compartiendo Esperanza: Speaking With Latinos About Mental Health

NAMI Minnesota (National Alliance on Mental Illness) is offering services, resources and free classes to the Latino community every Tuesday from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. at Neighbors, Inc.

Lack of information and misconceptions that surround mental health issues prevent many members of the Latino community from getting the help and support they need. Compartiendo Esperanza is a bilingual 90-minute presentation that can help increase mental health awareness in Latino communities by addressing a number of important topics:

  • The signs and symptoms of anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and depression
  • How to talk about mental health and decrease stigma
  • An overview of recovery and how it’s possible
  • The types of mental health services and supports available, including NAMI education and support programs
