Nearly 1 in 5 Latino adults suffers a mental health problem, such as depression, anxiety, and traumatic stress.

But what’s the state of mental health for Latino kids?

Use #SaludTues on Sept. 12, 2017, to tweetchat with us as we explore the new Salud America! “Healthy Minds and Latino Kids” research review!

The new research review, to be released during the chat, will cover the latest data on mental health and access to care among Latino youth. The review also features programs and policies that promote healthy minds in communities, schools, and homes for Latino kids.

We’ll open the floor to your stories, tips and experiences, as we explore:

  • Findings from the brand-new “Healthy Minds and Latino Kids” research review from Salud America! (to be released here on Sept. 12, 2016).
  • How Latino kids are affected by disparities in mental health care?
  • The effect that bullying on Latino kids.
  • How the migration experience impacts stress, anxiety and depression in Latino kids.

Be sure to use the hashtag #SaludTues to follow the conversation on Twitter and share stories and resources to promote healthy minds!
