Latinx Immigrants Health Status and Healthcare Utilization in Grand Island
MHDI investigators are expanding on a previous project to assess immigration trauma and health among Latinx immigrants in Grand Island. Feedback from MHDI partners was used to modify the original study to increase the study’s impact on immigrants beyond the Lincoln area. Participants completed an hour-long survey that helps MHDI researchers understand healthcare access and barriers, experiences of discrimination, mental health (e.g. depression and trauma), mental health stigma, and preferences in desired resources for addressing mental health issues. This project aims to recruit 200 Latinx immigrants in rural Nebraska and be utilized as a tool to 1) expand on knowledge of mental health among Latinx immigrants in rural Nebraska 2) identify preferences in mental health resources, 3) allow for MHDI to continue building rapport with our community partners.
