ECHO Clinical Consultation Program:

Latine Mental Health

Increasing Evidence-Based Practice Capacity in Latine Mental Health Care

Join us on Fridays from 12-1:30PM

To register for our upcoming sessions and to stay in the loop of all our ECHO programming, join the La Mesita Network!

Too often, clinicians in NC serving the Latine community find themselves isolated and limited in their access to the latest knowledge and best practices.

As part of El Futuro’s wider Latine Mental Health Provider Network, La Mesita, our Project ECHO initiative will help mental health and primary care providers across the state receive expert case consultations and access to the latest research through the power of video consultation.

Moving knowledge, not patients:

  • Through El Futuro’s ECHO initiative, providers will gain capacity to deliver best practices in mental healthcare for Latines. This allows clients across the state to receive the best care from their local providers. 
  • Reduced provider stress/isolation + increased knowledge/capacity = improved client health outcomes

What does an El Futuro TeleECHO session look like?

  • Content based on a series model where we focus on a diagnosis or social issue in Latine mental health
  • Sessions are 40% didactic, 60% collaborative case consultation
  • Topics such as assessment, evidence-based practices in adult and adolescent treatment and psychopharmocology are discussed
  • An open, non-judgmental learning environment!

Register for Our Next ECHO Series!

Our Latine Mental Health ECHO Teleconsultation Series involves brief didactics on best practices followed by collaborative case consultations with providers from across the state. Each series centers on a specific topic impacting mental health that providers may encounter when working with the Latinx community. This series is titled “‘Introduction to Working with Autism in Latine Communities.”

This series focuses on helping providers deepen their understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in general, as well as the ways cultural values and structural issues impact diagnosing and treatment in Latine communities. The series will provide an overview of the definition and prevalence of ASD, as well as the available resources in North Carolina for screening, evaluating, and providing treatment and ongoing support for people and families impacted by ASD.
