Raíces de Bienestar
Our mission is to improve and strengthen the mental health and emotional wellbeing of the Latinx community through culturally-grounded & evidence-based clinical services, community programs, and education.
Bottom Line for Portland
Raíces fills a critical need for culturally-specific, community-centered mental health & healing services for the Latinx community. Since January 2023, we have served over 4000 Latinx community members with our trauma-informed community programs & mental health services. Only 3% of mental health providers in Oregon identify as Latinx, while Oregon's Latinx community is 14% and rapidly growing. We offer prevention and clinical services to improve mental health equitably.
"I look forward to the program every week, because I learn so much and have a safe space to share, learn and connect with people like me and in my language." - Program Participant
“I felt very proud the other day, when I was able to use one of the mindfulness skills you taught us to help a family member. I walked that person through one of exercises and that person became relaxed and took notes on how she can do that activity in the future when feeling overwhelmed” - Program Participant
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Raíces is a mental health non-profit for the Latinx community by the Latinx community. All our clinical services and programs are provided in Spanish and lead by bi-lingual, bi-cultural clinicians and traditional health workers. We are guided by a 100% Latinx community advisory board, 90% of our staff are Latinx, and 60% of our Board are Latinx.
