Nevada County Latino outreach — connecting to community resources

Submitted to The Union

A Nevada County Latino outreach coordinator is available to help Latino families connect to community resources by offering interpretation and translation and by promoting physical and mental health among community members. In order to better serve the Latino community, Nevada County Behavioral Health has also contracted for promotora services. A “promotora” is a lay Hispanic/Latino community member who receives specialized training to provide basic health education in the community without being a professional health care worker. The promotora leads groups in Spanish to discuss mental health, substance abuse, domestic violence and WRAP (Wellness, Recovery, Action, Plan). Promotoras work in the community at the Family Resource Centers in western Nevada County and can be reached at 530-273-7077.​ Additionally there are two therapists available who speak Spanish. To learn more, call 530-273-7077. Para más detalles llame 530-273-7077.
