Steven Regeser López is a Professor of Psychology and Social Work at the University of Southern California. He has dedicated his 39-year career as an academic clinical psychologist to improving mental health services for the Latinx community. He has developed programs to teach people in Mexico and the United States to identify the early signs of serious mental illness so they can receive prompt care. He has taught mental health professionals to work
effectively with culturally diverse communities, especially Latinx communities. And for 15 years, he directed a research training program in Mexico in which 131 students from across the United States participated. In all his efforts, he strives to promote a conversation about mental health, the role of culture, and effective care.
