Latinx Mental Health and Treatment Outcomes Lab

lab identifier

Welcome to the Latinx Mental Health and Treatment Outcomes (LMHT) lab at the University of Nebraska!  

What we do: We focus on finding better ways to understand mental health disparities for Latinx populations and evaluating strategies that reduce them.  Much of the work on understanding disparities focuses on differences in trauma exposure and other stressful events like discrimination.  We also extend the reach of services through things like mobile applications and working alongside other health providers.  More than anything, we seek to have a positive impact on the community through our research. The lab is directed by Dr. Arthur "Trey" Andrews III.


Check out the UNL Department of Psychology spotlight for one of our lab members, Maricela Galdamez, and the UNL Institute for Ethnic Studies spotlight  for another one of our lab members, Sandra Mariely Estrada González. We are very proud to be able to work alongside them!
