Abstract
The suicide rates for Latinos living in the United States have been increasing since 2000. Because of the Latino Paradox, this increase is going largely unrecognized. It is important to understand the risk and protective factors involved in Latino suicide in the U.S in order to combat this issue and provide more comprehensive and culturally appropriate mental health care for this population. In order to do so, practitioners must become aware of Latino cultures and update their practices so that Latino clients feel comfortable, safe, and helped. This will require recognition of suicide risk and protective factors as well as the experiences of Latinos living in the U.S and how they affect a client's mental health and implementation of evidence-based practices specific to Latino clients. By doing so, mental healthcare providers can help better the lives of Latinos living in the U.S
