What Does Gay Mean? Survey Media Teleconference
On October 17, 2007, Mental Health America hosted a media teleconference call to discuss the results of its national study of Latino parents on parent-child communication about bullying, sexual orientation and prejudice. The call focused on:
- Communication between Latino parents and children about bullying, sexual orientation and prejudice
- Latino parents' attitudes toward bullying
- Latino parents' awareness of bullying in schools and its impact on youth
The call was hosted by Mental Health America Chairman of the Board, Dr. Sergio Aguilar-Gaxiola, M.D., Ph.D., a leading expert in Latino/Mexican American mental health. Dr. Aguilar-Gaxiola is professor of Clinical Internal Medicine & Director of the Center for Reducing Health Disparities at the University of California, Davis Department of Medicine (Sacramento, California).
Also participating was Jesús Sanchez, a gay Chicano youth who bravely shared his experiences with bullying and prejudice.
