Technical Assistance & Consultation

Technical Assistance & Consultation

ALMA supports organizations in overcoming barriers to providing high-quality mental health services to Latinx communities. Through our process of assessment, goal development, and consultation, ALMA collaborates with your agency to increase your ability to reach Latinx individuals in a culturally responsive manner.

Examples of how ALMA can assist agencies in supporting Latinx experiences include tailored suggestions for:

 

  • Developing signage, materials, and forms in Spanish and incorporating images and themes in decor and materials reflecting Latinx communities
  • Integrating personnel policies focused on hiring, retaining, and promoting bilingual and Latinx staff
  • Adopting financial policies that allow access to services for uninsured clients
  • Offering non-traditional scheduling and service locations

The ALMA Process

ALMA works in partnership with organizations, using the principles of implementation science, to offer personalized services that match their unique goals and needs. We do this by:

 

  • Providing guided assessments to identify organizational strengths and areas for growth
  • Engaging agencies in goal-planning to increase their capacity to provide care to their local Latinx communities
  • Supporting organizations through technical assistance to increase the accessibility of mental health care to Latinx communities.
