Advancing Mental Health Equity
We believe liberation, wellness and healing are universal rights and we're passionate about ensuring our communities have this access.
At Contigo Wellness, we have a dream, that one day, mental health care is going to be accessible and affordable, for all persons in need of this service, by increasing and improving equity in the mental wellness area.
We exist to break down the barriers that keep people of color from getting mental health care. Our programs give every member of our community access to mental health treatment..Contigo Wellness is a non-profit organization that was established in 2020 to meet the disproportionate needs of the Communities of Color. Latino/a/x communities are disproportionately outnumbered in educational attainment, workplace employment, income and health, as well as are overrepresented in jails and prisons. We recognize this, and are dedicated to meeting these opportunity gaps and help lift our Communities of Color, starting with mental health.
Disparities in Latinx communities
Even though more hispanics are going to college and graduating, progress in these communities remain unchanged. We are dedicated to helping our Latinx community needs through increasing mental health access and equity.
