This initiative was developed by CAPS staff in consultation with UNC Chapel Hill’s CAPS to specifically address the mental health and wellbeing needs of students of color. In recognition of both the disproportionate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on folx of color as well as the ways in which traditional mental health services have historically neglected development of culturally-responsive services, CAPS MMHEI in alignment with the larger university’s goals to pursue equity, inclusion, and diversity, endeavors to destigmatize mental health among folx of color, eliminate barriers to access, and provide culturally congruent support/resources.

The Latin American Coalition is a community of Hispanics, immigrants, and allies who promote the full and equal participation of all people in the civic, economic, and cultural life of North Carolina through integration, education, celebration, and advocacy.
This Directory consists of culturally grounded, Latinx mental health practitioners who believe in the human right and dignity of Latinx communities and Latinx migrant communities across the United States.
LASO will promote educational and cultural exchange in all matters related to Latin America and the Caribbean among the student body, faculty, and staff of Charlotte and in the community, and also help to enhance the social, cultural and academic background of Latin-American students and people while at Charlotte.
Our mission is to unite the Latinx population and empower them to serve communities in need. We will connect our members with resources that will aid them in their collegiate career and inspire them to use their skills for service to others. We will embrace our heritage and cultural roots and build a culture of service within the Latinx community. Our objectives serve to aid in our mission and are as follows:
“LatinX of Engineering” has the purpose to bring awareness to programs
within the college. Through events such as workshops, public speakers, career fairs, and community outreach. Through the workshops, public speakers, and career fairs, members and students will be able to obtain opportunities to speak to companies directly for future endeavors. As for our outreach, professionals will advocate on the professional level for members and students to gain skills. This club’s focus is to close the gap between professors, companies, and students about the different opportunities that are offered on campus. We are a Latinx interest but not an exclusive club.
The purpose of the LHS is to recognize the academic achievement of Latinx students and to support the members while they are enrolled at UNC Charlotte. Additional goals are: to assist members in developing burgeoning professional identities while they are students; to educate the larger campus community about the entire spectrum of Latinx cultures; to assist local Latinx communities in the greater Charlotte area with service.
