La Voz de la Esperanza has a unique way to effectively increase access and to promote Mental Health wellness services in the Latino community through peer support. The program is formally and informally engaging the Latino community to offer culturally sensitive support.
The program's main goal is to provide outreach to link people to services, information, and Mental Health wellness and La Voz is mainly serving the underserved Latino community in Lake County, but is open to all, addressing multiple barriers to accessing services, including those related to culture, language, stigma, and mistrust.
Other community-based organizations are also referring Spanish-speaking consumers to this center for services, helping often underserved individuals feel more comfortable receiving support and discussing mental health challenges in a culturally relevant way.
