Al Exito Mental Health Study
During 2018, Al Éxito operated 21 programs in 8 communities across the state of Iowa. During program sessions students identified numerous challenges they experienced related to stress and mental health. In response to these experiences, the Al Éxito organization conducted a study of the perspectives of Latinx youth on mental health care between March and May 2018. Participants attended programs in both urban and rural areas and were enrolled in both middle and high schools.
