As Latinos, we celebrate and rely upon family, finding strength and support in traditions passed down over
many generations. Adapting to our new home and navigating the many psychological, social, and cultural
aspects of living in America can be overwhelming at times. That's why experts from Comunidades Latinas
Unidas En Servicio (CLUES) have created My Family, My Self, a user-friendly guide specifically geared for
Latinos, to share their firsthand knowledge of the Latino culture and expertise in behavioral health. In this guide, the staff at CLUES offer several success stories from a variety of Latino families that they have encountered in more than thirty years of community service experience.
In My Family, My Self you will find information on:
Key life issues such as parenting, gender identity, and aging
Alcohol and drug abuse, prevention, and treatment
Ways of contributing to your family and society through education, work, and financial stability
The value of spirituality and morals in maintaining a sense of personal and family well-being
Select passages are bilingual.
