Project Wings Home Visits

A Mental Health Intervention for Latino Families

Project Wings Home Visits is a collaborative school-based, community linked mental health promotion intervention for Latino adolescents and their families in Minneapolis, MN. Core to the intervention is the use of a community health worker model to provide home-based outreach and education to parents of Latino adolescents. The intervention was developed using a community-based participatory research approach that involved the cooperation of a community health care system, a public high school, and a university. This article demonstrates the benefits, strengths, and challenges of using community-based participatory research in creating and implementing health promotion interventions.
