There are about 90,000 Hispanic people in the St. Louis area, but mental health services featuring Spanish-speaking providers lag behind need, said Julia Lopez, a public health researcher and clinical social worker at Washington University. 

Lopez will speak Wednesday about the need for more mental health resources for the St. Louis region’s small but growing Hispanic population.
