2017 Cultural Connection
On this edition we discuss about the LGBT Latino populations and their behavioral health disparities. This is a relevant topic and an issue of utmost importance considering the complexity of their reality of being part of several minority groups because of their ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity and because of the societal bias against behavioral health disorders. This community is often impacted by stigma, prejudice, and discrimination.
