Creation of bi-partisan Senate Mental Health Caucus could have positive impacts on Latinos

Last month a group of senators announced the establishment of the Senate Mental Health Caucus. The caucus was co-founded by Senator. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., Alex Padilla, D-Calif., Tina Smith, D-Minn and Republican Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa. The formation of the Senate Mental Health Caucus appears to be a step toward addressing the mental health crisis in the United States. The caucus is expected to play a role in raising awareness about mental health issues, and in improving access to mental health care for all Americans, including Latinos.
