July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month
"Despite advances in health equity, disparities in mental health care persist. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) reports that racial and ethnic minority groups in the U.S. are less likely to have access to mental health services, less likely to use community mental health services, more likely to use emergency departments, and more likely to receive lower quality care," states the Office of Minority Health page for National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month.
The Office of Minority Health offers a range of resources and tools to help organizations increase awareness and address disparities in mental health care.
Resources from the MHTTC and ATTC Networks
The ATTC Network offers the special resource page:
This website features the white paper, A Journey to Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services, along with print and multi-media resources on the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS), Cultural Humility and Cultural Considerations, and resources for specific population.
The resources listed were created by Regional Centers across the ATTC network, and the page is updated regularly as new trainings and tools become available.
