Experimental: Peer Navigator Intervention
Integrated care with a peer navigator to be provided for one year, where data will be collected at baseline, 4, 8 and 12 months.
Behavioral: Peer Navigator Intervention
Peer navigators will be Hispanics/Latinos with a mental illness in recovery who will complete and meet certification for the peer navigator training program that will be evolved out of the mixed methods process. Investigators propose the peer navigators will enhance patient engagement in integrated care which will, in turn, improve physical and mental health and wellness of patients in this group

- Weekly Health Appointment Measure [ Time Frame: Every week for up to 52 weeks ]This scale represents the total achieved appointments and total scheduled appointments. Data was collected weekly and added up per month.The minimum is 0 ( no appointments ) with no maximum (participants were not limited to the number of appointments per week).
- Attitudes Toward Seeking Professional Psychological Help Scale (ATSPPH) [ Time Frame: Baseline (0), 4, 8, and 12 months ]ATSPPH is a 29 item scale that has been used in more than 150 studies. The scale ranges from 1 (disagreement) to 4 (agreement). Higher overall scores reflect more positive attitudes towards help seeking. Subscales were summed to get the total of each scale. Total scores range from 29-116.
- Empowerment Scale (EMP) [ Time Frame: Baseline (0), 4, 8, and 12 months ]This widely used scale examines multiple dimensions of perceived personal empowerment in people with serious mental illness.The scale ranges from 1 (strongly agree) to 4 (strongly disagree). The lower the score, the higher level of empowerment. The scores of each subscale range from 4 to 16.
- Recovery Assessment Scale (RAS) [ Time Frame: Baseline (0), 4, 8, and 12 months ]The RAS assesses five factors related to recovery from mental illness including hope and goals. The scale ranges from 1 (strongly disagree) to 5 (strongly agree). A higher score reflects greater attitudes towards recovery. The total score range is 22-110.
- Medical Outcome Study (SF-36) [ Time Frame: Baseline (0), 4, 8, and 12 months ]This a 36 item short form that is widely adopted measure of medical health outcomes in mental health services research. Each item is scored on a 0 to 100 range. Items in same scale are averaged together to create the 8 scale scores. Higher scores indicate better health. In the current study, the total score it the sum of all scales scores. The total score can range from 0 to 800.
- Quality of Life Scale (QLS) [ Time Frame: Baseline (0), 4, 8, and 12 months ]The QLS is highly used in services research and comprises 6 items of various domains of independent living. The scale ranges from 1 (terrible) to 7 (delighted). The lower the score the less quality of life. The total scores range 6-42.
- Availability Health Service Scale (AHSS) [ Time Frame: Baseline (0), 4, 8, and 12 months ]The scale measures the availability of health services. The scale ranges from 1 (Not at all) to 9 (Very much). The lower the score the less availability of a service. Items were summed to get the total of each scale. Score totals range from 26-234.
- Texas Christian University Health Form- Physical Health Subscale [ Time Frame: Baseline (0), 4, 8, and 12 months ]Assesses physical health in the last 4 months and Emotional/Mental Health in the last 30 days.The scale ranges from 1 (None of the time) to 5 (All of the time). The higher the score, the more health problems. Score totals on the physical health scale range 14-70.
