National Hispanic American Heritage Month is celebrated September 15 to October 15.


The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) notes that Hispanic and Latino/Latina individuals with mental health issues are less likely to receive treatment compared to the U.S. average.


Language barriers, higher poverty rates, less access to health insurance, and cultural differences can make it more difficult to receive mental health care.
