This May, El Futuro is launching its annual May Mental Health Awareness Campaign! This May Mental Health we will be working towards raising $100,000 to sustain El Futuro’s clinics as well as spread awareness on the realities that our immigrant neighbors and friends face. El Futuro is a mental health agency, and we believe it is important to advocate for the rights and voices of clients and community members. As North Carolina’s Latino immigrant community continues to grow, so does the need for mental health services.

In 2004, El Futuro started as a volunteer effort and to this day, we rely on volunteer Mental Health Ambassadors to help us spread El Futuro’s mission with friends, family, networks, and all those who are interested in supporting and increasing mental health access to Latino families in North Carolina. Mental Health Ambassadors are essential to El Futuro’s work as a nonprofit mental health clinic, and we are grateful to those dedicated to decreasing mental health disparities.

This May Mental Health month we will need the help of Mental Health Ambassadors more than ever! We are excited to share a May Mental Health Ambassador Toolkit to prepare Ambassadors with knowledge on El Futuro and commit to sharing El Futuro’s campaign throughout the month of May with your friends, families, neighbors, colleagues, employers, places of worship, and beyond. Additionally, Ambassadors can enjoy benefits that include:

  • Increasing access to mental health services for Latino community
  • Receive recognition at El Futuro events
  • Receive self-care package full of goodies from one of our local partner’s, Burts Bee
  • Enter a raffle for a luxury massage from Auroraflow
  • Join with other Ambassadors and the Executive leadership of El Futuro for a Mental Health Month Launch zoom call.

You can be part of a movement to inform, empower, and inspire our community – and have all of the tools to do so!
