Latinos are among the fastest growing minority group in the U.S. and they continue to experience considerable barriers to accessing medical and behavioral health services in the U.S. As a group, Latinos evidence high prevalence of anxiety disorders and comorbidity, highlighting the need to improve current disparities in quality of and access to mental health care. A unique opportunity now exists to address such disparities as the new health care reform is aimed at medical and behavioral health integration. Given the small number of Latinos that do seek mental health care often do so in primary care settings, developing culturally appropriate integrated care in these settings may be an optimal place to start. This chapter provides an overview of an integrated model for anxiety as well as recommendations for implementing culturally appropriate adaptations of the model to improve the quality of care for Latinos.
