La Mesita Latino Mental Health Provider Network
In our years of experience providing mental health and substance use services to Latino immigrant families, one thing has become clear to us — we need others in order to keep it up! We need community!
That’s why we’re building a network to connect people providing services to the Latino community. We call the network “La Mesita” to keep in focus that the network is like coming around a table to talk, share, and learn together.

When she first came to El Futuro as an 8th grader, she was thinking about dropping out of school and couldn’t stop crying because of her sadness. She didn’t want to listen to her parents and bristled when anyone tried to give her advice. She found out about El Futuro when we made a presentation at her middle school. As a result of therapy and targeted treatment, she gradually became more hopeful and a lovely smile returned to her face. In 9th grade she made the soccer team. In 10th grade she celebrated her Quinceañera. In 11th grade she took her first AP class. In her senior year, after receiving a letter of acceptance from UNC Chapel Hill, she dashed off an email to El Futuro to share her exciting news: “Thank you for helping me and encouraging me!” Her note was signed, “A fresh new Tarheel to be.”
