(from event page) As the country continues to grapple with systemic racism and injustice, Covid-19, and a drug overdose crisis, the need for greater access to high quality behavioral health services could not be clearer.
Yet, according to a National Institute of Mental Health study, members of racially and ethnically marginalized populations have less access to mental health services, are less likely to use community mental health services, more likely to use inpatient hospitalization and emergency rooms and more likely to receive lower quality care. Many of these disparities are rooted in historical trauma, racism, and bias. Addressing these disparities will require sustained efforts to improve clinical education, reduce clinician implicit bias, and create clinical pathways that meet the needs of marginalized populations.
Please join us for this webinar as we explore the historic and systematic causes of these behavioral health disparities and innovative strategies to address them within your respective programs.
