ACES Aware Latino Peer to Peer Learning Network

Through administration of a physical and mental health screening and referral program at the Mexican Consulate, HEC has worked closely with clients and health care providers to navigate the growing mental health crisis in the Latino community.  In 2019, 80% of HEC’s mental health program clients at HEC’s Ventanilla de Salud (VDS) program identified past episodes of trauma, particularly in childhood.  

HEC is working closely with VDS health care partners to launch an ACE’s Aware Latino Peer to Peer Learning  Network convening organizations serving the 24-county California Gold Country Region (Sacramento, San Joaquin, Placer, Sutter, El Dorado, Amador, Yolo, Yuba counties). 


 This is a one year project (2020-2021) funded by the Department of Health Care Services and the Office of the California Surgeon General.
