Finding the right mental health services and supports can be challenging. For Latinx/Chicanx people, searching for culturally responsive providers with a heightened awareness about their particular needs and concerns, the challenge can be even more daunting. The Institute of Chicanx Psychology along with the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health has been able to finally bring this much needed network together! The Austin Latinx Chicanx Behavioral Health Network (LCBHN) was created to help the Latinx/Chicanx community members who are interested in mental health issues connect with one another. Comprised of behavioral health professionals, consumers, youth and their families, faith leaders, community leaders and community members, the network identifies and brings together local supports for individuals living with mental health, substance use, and/or developmental disabilities. LCBHN meets in person regularly to make connections, foster relationships, discuss current topics, and hear presentations by mental health experts.
