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 and improve mental health equity, particularly for Latinx and Spanish-speaking populations. Much of this work centers on mechanisms that disparately impact marginalized populations, including traumatic event exposure and discrimination. We also recognize that enhancing equity across race/ethnicity or immigration requires considering how multiple intersecting identities affect the lived experience of the people we serve. In order to enhance access to care, we frequently use non-traditional approaches to care, including technology-based resources and working collaboratively other health providers. More than anything, we seek to have a positive impact on the community through our research and related clinical care. The lab is directed by Dr. Arthur "Trey" Andrews III.
Congratulations to graduate student member Natalia Acosta for her recently awarded American Association of University Women fellowship! The fellowship supports her second year of graduate study while she is starting to develop a disseminable PTSD treatment among victims of violence in Colombia.
Dr. Andrews is accepting applications for a graduate student to start in the Fall of 2020. See the main page for the Clinical Psychology Training Program for more information regarding the program and the application process. Spanish/English bilingual fluency preferred, but not required.
Dr. Andrews is also looking for undergraduate students who are interested in research experience. Students may be from any discipline and bilingual Spanish/English skills are preferred.
