NAMI Seeking Applicants for Sharing Hope Latino Program Pilot
Find more information and access the application here.
Mental illness affects one in five individuals in America. Latinos are no exception. However, as many studies have highlighted, limited mental illness educational opportunities and high levels of stigma prevent many members of this community from accessing mental health support.
NAMI is seeking to partner with Latino organizations to share mental health education and support.
About the Sharing Hope Latino Program
NAMI’s Multicultural Action Center, which works to focus attention on system reform to ensure access to culturally competent services, education and support for all Americans, created Sharing Hope to fill the gap of available knowledge and resources about mental health for African American faith communities and has adapted this program for focus on Latino communities. This initiative aims to build partnership among NAMI and Latino organizations, increase understanding and awareness of mental health recovery, address mental health stigma in the Latino community, foster dialogue about support for mental illness and introduce NAMI education and support programs.
