Consultation and Capacity Building

Raíces de Bienestar provides expertly lead consultation, training, and education for a variety of sectors interested in identifying, addressing, and preventing mental health concerns in BIPOC communities, with special interest in the Latinx community.

All offerings are designed by Dra. Ruth Zúñiga, Raíces de Bienestar Executive Director, Co-Founder and Licensed Psychologist. Dra. Zúñiga is the equity award winner for Oregon Psychological Association, the 2019 Public Health Ambassador for Washington County, and the creator of an academic program focused on Latinx psychology. She has over 15 years of experience serving the mental health needs of the community in indigenous, lower income, rural, and lower-income communities. Our facilitators and consultants are bi-lingual and bi-cultural licensed psychologists or doctoral level psychology students, and/or experts in community health approaches to emotional wellbeing.
Consultative services and trainings build capacity and skills to provide culturally responsive, evidence-based, and trauma/healing informed services to Latinx and other BIPOC individuals, families and communities. We can offer a range of support, from one-off trainings to ongoing consultation in implementing learnings and troubleshooting concerns. We focused on asset framing work and support organizations with innovated ideas of creating healing centered spaces.
