Does anyone know of hispanic professional groups in the cities of Harrisburg, York, Lancaster, or Lebanon PA?  I work at Philhaven Hospital and am interested in networking with persons in the behavioral health profession.

I don't know the process, but I would like to be part of this group.

Do I need someone to sponsor me? Or can I just apply?

My name is Alex, I live Washington (close to Portland, OR) state in a city where there is not many Latino mental health care workers.  I work in a FQHC, and I am always looking for resources for my patients, my community especially one that offers low cost or sliding fee scale.  Un gusto conocer los.  Buenas noches,

Hola, It seems like there has been very little activity within this group. Maybe we could start something up! There is really a need for Hispanic/Latino mental health professionals to network. Not only are there political issues that need to be addressed, there are issues related to mental health and the Hispanic/Latino community. A big factor in working with our people is the issue of trauma both acute and chronic. When the underlying issue is related to a trauma  it might be difficult to address the presenting issue. I'd like to see what some of the members of this group think and feel.

Hi Everyone, I am Godfrey Santillana, I am a bilingual counselor. I have been in the field for almost 5 years. Currently I am working on my doctoral degree. My concentration is in solution focus and most of my sessions are from 6 to 10 sessions long. I am from Argentina, as such, I speak Spanish very well. I was in the US Air Force for 17 years. I have an MBA and an MS in Psychology. I enjoy meeting people and establishing long lasting relationships. I love life and what I allow life to give me. I hope that we'll meet each other soon and continue this forum live. I also hope to learn from everyone of you, as I am sure you will teach me many things that I have yet to learn.

Delete Comment I am a graduate student in counseling psychology and previously worked as a school psychologist with a hispanic population of children. I did an intensive research paper on hispanic adolescents and depression and the rates are alarming. Specially when it comes to teenager girls, they are more likely to suffer from depression and suicidal ideation and more likely to commit suicide than any other ethnic group including caucasians. We can't let this happen any longer! something must be done. I may only be able to reach my local community but if we all work together in this national network, maybe we can reach the whole country and change the statistics for good!!!
