Abstract

This paper attempts to explore the cultural stigma associated with mental health treatment among Latina and African-American Women. It also offers a possible intervention that could be implemented in New York City. The intervention involves an event in which the women are interviewed for feedback and information is provided. Discussion is included regarding why this topic should matter to the general population, academic researchers, and social workers.
