Mental health advocates have been working for years to decrease the stigma around talking about and getting treatment for mental health challenges.

KPBS North County reporter, Tania Thorne recently reported on mental health in the Latinx community and discovered that negative stigmas and cultural influences are barriers preventing some Latinos from getting help.

That's why KPBS is hosting a virtual conversation about mental health in the Latinx community.


We want to hear your stories, experiences and questions.

The conversation's panelists are Lizeth Ma, marriage and family therapist; Luis Canseco, domestic violence education and prevention specialist at the Community Resource Center; and Roy Inzunza, who has navigated the mental health system personally and now consults with corporations to provide short-term emotional and spiritual help to employees.

Do you have questions for our panelists? Do you have a personal story you'd like to share? Send it to us in the box below.
