The National Resource Center for Hispanic Mental Health is a private non-profit charitable organization, a 501 (c)(3) dedicated to promoting quality mental health services through policy development initiatives, training, technical assistance, research, data collection, best practice development, and anti-stigma and anti-discrimination campaigns.

2. Creating and fostering the development and institutionalization of best practice programs.

3. Conceptualizing and implementing high-quality trainings on culturally competent mental health service delivery and on policy development and advocacy.

4. Supporting the planning, development and implementation of policies and systems of care at the local, state and national levels.

5. Developing comprehensive and user-friendly vehicles to disseminate information in English and Spanish on an array of mental health topics, research studies, available resources for consumers, family members and providers and important field related events.
