Upcoming Webinars

June 28 from 10AM – 11AM

“‘Un segundito… Creo que esto le va a ayudar!’ How to Find and Use Psychoeducational Materials That Are Relevant, Relational and Revelatory”



El Futuro started through meetings between mental health providers who came together (usually before work at 8am!) to drink coffee and share knowledge and resources. We would lay out on the table pamphlets, folletos, and handouts to swap and exchange. Over the last two years, La Mesita has revived that spirit of learning and sharing! In this webinar we acknowledge that giving out psychoeducational material and recommending websites is great in theory but not always well received. We’ll look at effective psychoeducational materials and methods for increasing the likelihood they will actually be used. There are some tried and true resources but also many newer ones. Come to La Mesita ready to learn and to share your resources with us.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • Become familiar with a range of psychoeducational materials and accessible resources

  • Understand the key elements to sharing materials in order to have a higher rate of uptake and impact

  • Identify ways to create an environment of education and self-guided learning in your office


Luke Smith, MD is the Executive Director of El Futuro. He is a practicing Spanish-bilingual psychiatrist who is boarded in Child/Adolescent and General Psychiatry. In 2004 he led the creation of El Futuro in order to address the unmet need of bringing accessible behavioral health services to the growing Latino community in North Carolina. El Futuro now serves approximately 1,700 individuals each year from 20 counties. Psychiatry residents, Family Medicine residents, medical students, Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner students, Social Work students, and Psychology doctoral students all train under Dr. Smith and his colleagues to learn practical psychiatric care and implementation of effective service delivery. Under his watch, El Futuro has maintained a careful focus on patient engagement and participated in four successful multi-year community based projects funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and Patient Centered Outcome Research Institute (PCORI).
