The research presented on this paper examined the impact that the number of barriers have towards the delay in getting treatment among the Latino population. Participants (N=31) at Family Solution Collaborative, answered questions presented to them via a self-administered questionnaire that contained questions that examined types of barriers and how they impact mental health services. An independent sample t-test was conducted assessing generation status and the sum of perceived barriers. A Pearson correlation, design was used, for the purpose of searching for a relationship between the number of years in the U.S. and age with the sum of perceived barriers. Results for all test conducted showed no significance between all variables. In conclusion, although findings for this study did not support past research it is important to address the limitations to continue to develop culturally appropriate programs to help reduce the disparity of Latinos within mental health services.
