Solutions for Treating Hispanic Adults With ADHD

Hispanics comprise a growing minority population, but many remain underserved for mental health problems such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Many barriers exist that prevent patients from seeking treatment, including cultural attitudes and beliefs and communication problems. However, clinicians can take steps to address these barriers by providing education on mental health disorders and treatment, building rapport with patients, and meeting language needs through the use of translators and Spanish-language materials. By learning the patient’s unique background and beliefs, clinicians can become part of the solution to ensure culturally competent care for their adult Hispanic patients.
