La Mesita Latinx Mental
Health Provider Network

Why Latinx?

‘Latinx’ is a term that acknowledges the gender binary inherent in the Spanish language and attempts to be inclusive of the entirety of the gender spectrum. As a result of our targeted audience for our teaching and learning services, El Futuro has decided to use the term ‘Latinx’ in La Mesita programming. However, we continue to use the terms ‘Latino/Latina’ in our clinical work. We hold no expectation of other organizations or individuals to make similar linguistic decisions. 

Check out a video overview of our La Mesita programming!

In our years of experience providing mental health and substance use services to Latinx 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’ve built a network to connect people providing mental health services and substance use treatment to the Latinx community. We’re calling the network “La Mesita” to keep in focus that the network is like coming around a table to talk, share, and learn together.
