As a precautionary measure, El Futuro offices are temporarily closed.

Appointments now are available by video or TeleFuturo (using your cell phone, tablet or computer) or by phone call, at the time previously scheduled.

El Futuro is accepting new patients and new referrals for therapy, psychiatry, substance use treatment, and DWI services. To get connected for services for the first time, please call 919-688-7101 to give us your information. Then we’ll set you up with a video assessment with a clinician as soon as one is available!

On the day of your appointment, you will receive a text with a link to connect with your therapist or psychiatrist by video.

Use the following link to see a video of how to install the “Zoom” application, which you will need to connect through video at the time of your appointment:

Training and Technical Assistance

Because of our history of providing culturally-responsive, trauma-informed care to under-resourced Latino families, we are often called upon to offer training and technical assistance to others. With funding from the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust and now The Duke Endowment, last year we launched La Mesita Latino Mental Health Provider Network – a statewide network to help reduce professional isolation and burnout among providers serving Latino families, and we are expanding other training and technical assistance activities.

Research and Evaluation

El Futuro engages in research when it furthers our mission and helps the people we serve. We’re actively expanding applied research, program evaluation, and dissemination activities in strategic ways, with a long-term goal of developing into a national model and resource center for Latino mental health and substance use treatment services. El Futuro is now in a second year of partnership with RTI International toward this end. Read more about our research endeavors here.
