|Hispanic/Latino Community Resources|SCBH has compiled various local resources to meet the needs of the Hispanic/Latino community and information to better understand mental health disparities impacting this community.
SCBH Hispanic Outreach and Latino Access (HOLA) Coordinator
The HOLA strategy, funded by MHSA, was implemented from 2014 to 2021 and was delivered by a half-time County Clinician designated as the HOLA Outreach Coordinator. The HOLA Coordinator conducted outreach with schools, health clinics, churches, local migrant camps and other key stakeholders on behalf of SCBH to reduce mental health stigma within the Latino community in an effort to increase access and utilization of county behavioral health services. This position is currently vacant and given this position has been difficult to recruit for and retain, SCBH will be contracting out these services through a procurement process during the 2022/23 fiscal year.
