The mission of the Latino Mental Health Research Program
(LMHRP) is to conduct research relevant to the health and
mental health needs of the Latino populations of California.
The LMHRP fulfills this mission by:
- developing, evaluating, and implementing preventive and
treatment interventions in Spanish and English;
- conducting culturally sensitive and linguistically appropriate
research with the Latino community in the San Francisco
Bay Area and beyond;
- training and supporting the career advancement of
Latinos(as), and other mental health professionals dedicated
to working with underserved populations in English and
- collaborating with other researchers nationally and internationally.
The Latino Mental Health Research Program is a
University of California, San Francisco (UCSF)
research group established in 1993 by the Latino Task Force at San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH). It is funded in part by a grant from the Committee on Latino Research of the University of California Office of the President.
Generous support for our projects has been provided by the Brin Wojcicki Foundation
