Hispanic American Mental Health Disparities Report

In this Guide...

Using federal data from the U.S. Census Bureau, we found 3.8 million Hispanic Americans aren't getting the mental health care services they need. Our report explores the issue, including expert public health analysis and local Spanish-language resources to help serve Latino Americans.

Key Findings

 

  • Louisiana, Idaho, Wisconsin, Iowa and Missouri have the highest percentages of Hispanic people who say they didn’t get mental health counseling or therapy services when they needed them.

  • Hispanic Americans in 28 states report higher rates of unmet mental health needs than Whites, despite similar rates of reported depression symptoms.

  • Almost 1 in 10 Hispanic Americans nationwide (9.3%) lack health insurance (5.6 million people in all). 

Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Household Pulse Survey, HelpAdvisor.com identified the states with the biggest disparities between White and Hispanic adults for unmet mental health needs.

According to our findings, 3.8 million Hispanic Americans say they don't get the mental health counseling and treatment they need.

Hispanic Americans are particularly vulnerable to challenges in receiving mental health care services they need. Language barriers, cultural differences and a lack of available resources are just some of the reasons why this demographic may experience an increased rate of undiagnosed or untreated mental illness. 

Nearly half of all individuals with a mental health issue are left untreated. And an untreated mental illness can have damaging effects on relationships, school and work, physical health, other mental illnesses, substance abuse and overall social well-being.  

The map below displays where the greatest disparities exist between Hispanics and Whites reporting unmet needs for mental health counseling, which means they needed mental health counseling or therapy but weren’t able to get help.

Map showing states with highest disparities of unmet mental health needs for hispanic and white residents

As illustrated by the map, a pocket exists in the Midwest, between Nebraska to the west, Kentucky to the east, Tennessee to the south and Wisconsin to the north, where a much higher number of Hispanic Americans are reporting unmet mental health needs compared to Whites.   

Louisiana reported the highest gap between the numbers of Hispanics and Whites who report unmet mental health needs, but the state is surrounded on all borders with states of low to medium reported levels of such differences.

Dr. Carlos Garcia, Licensed Clinical Psychologist –

“The majority of mental health professionals do not speak Spanish, nor have they been sufficiently educated in Hispanic culture. This often results in miscommunication and misinterpretations."

Mental Health Care Inequality

17.4% of Hispanics in Louisiana report having unmet mental health needs, which is significantly higher than that of the state  with the next highest rate (Idaho, at 12.4%).

Table showing states with highest rates of unmet mental health needs among Hispanics

The states with low Hispanic per-capita populations tend to be the states with the highest disparities between White Americans and Hispanic Americans who don’t get the therapy and counseling they need. For example, none of the nine states with the highest per capita populations of Hispanics ranked among the top 10 in terms of unmet mental health needs.    

One reason for such challenges could be that states with higher percentages of Hispanics may have more resources available to Spanish speaking residents. Dr. Carlos Garcia, a licensed clinical psychologist in Tampa, FL, suggests that a disparity in the number of Hispanic therapists and counselors may discourage individuals of the same background from seeking help. 

“The American Psychological Association found that only one percent of psychologists identified themselves as Hispanic even though Hispanics represent 20 percent of the U.S. population as a whole,” Dr. Garcia said. “The majority of mental health professionals do not speak Spanish, nor have they been sufficiently educated in Hispanic/Latinx culture. This often results in miscommunication and misinterpretations that can be very frustrating to the Hispanic/Latinx client.”

Hispanic culture could also be playing a part, as Dr. Garcia notes that Hispanic individuals are more likely to turn to family, friends, members of the clergy or a local healer during times of depression or anxiety. 

“American models of therapy value individuality and independence while Hispanic/Latinx culture values family unity, loyalty to family and friends and one’s role in the community,” he said.

And because mental health issues are not discussed as frequently in Hispanic culture, individuals may be less likely to recognize the signs and symptoms. 

“There is very little education and even misinformation about mental health for this population,” Dr. Garcia said.

Uninsured Hispanic Americans Missing Out on Care

Minority groups are more likely than White Americans to be uninsured, which may discourage them from seeking professional mental health services when they need them.  

The chart below shows which states have the highest percentage of uninsured Hispanics. Of the top six states on this list, four are among the states with the highest disparities of unmet mental health needs between Hispanics and Whites.  

Table showing states with highest rates of uninsured Hispanic residents

Fortunately, there are resources available to uninsured Hispanics in need of mental health care. And many of those resources provide services that are free or are affordably priced on a sliding scale.

“Sliding scale services accommodate individuals of low-income households with session fees that are affordable, and in some instances, pro bono services,” Dr. Garcia said. “Many psychologists and counselors I know maintain one to two spots in their caseload for pro-bono services. Similarly, there are many counselors that focus on providing services for uninsured and underinsured individuals.”

Methodology 

The data used in this project comes from the U.S. Census Household Pulse Survey. The week used for analysis was Week 25, which spans February 17th through March 1st.

To understand the disparity between Hispanic Americans and the non-minority population, we compared the percentage of each demographic that answered “Yes” to needing professional mental health services but not receiving it for any reason. We also compared the total number of Hispanic Americans that selected “Yes” to this question to the total Hispanic American population in each state. The population data came from the 2019 U.S. Census.

We also compared the total number of respondents who cited not having health insurance to the total population of Hispanic Americans in each state.
