|Help-Seeking Behavior Stigma, Social||Behavioral: NAMI Mental Health 101 and NAMI FaithNet||Not Applicable|
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||2400 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Intervention Model Description:||The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of California has developed Mental Health 101, a suite of contact-based education programs tailored for culturally diverse populations including Latino populations. Another NAMI program, FaithNet, provides resources and training on how churches can shape norms and overcome shame and stigma related to mental illness and treatment. NAMI FaithNet also assists with facilitating linkages to mental health services from providing referrals to partner mental health agencies to forming multi-sector collaboratives of social service organizations, clergy, and mental health providers to create a more holistic, coordinated system of care. The multi-component, church-based, intervention will build on NAMI's existing resources, with tailoring for Latino church-based settings.|

- Mental Health Service Use [ Time Frame: Mental Health Service Use between Baseline and 12-month Follow-up ]
Change in mental health service use among participants in intervention churches versus those in control churches.
Mental health service use will be measured with the following modified item from the California Health Interview Survey: "In the past 12 months have you seen a professional, such as a counselor, psychiatrist, or social worker for problems with your mental health, emotions, nerves, or your use of alcohol or drugs?"
Response options are dichotomous (Yes/No).

- Mental Illness Stigma [ Time Frame: Mental Illness Stigma reduction between Baseline and 12-month Follow-up ]
Change in stigma among participants in intervention churches versus those in control churches. Personal stigma will be assessed with social distance measures, one of the most widely used indicators of stigma. Social distance is assessed by asking respondents to rate their degree of willingness to interact with someone with a mental illness in various interpersonal situations (e.g., work closely on a job; live next door; spend an evening socializing; marry into the family; as a friend).
