Join the Conversation! Culturally Responsive Evidence-Based and Community-Defined Practices for Mental Health

That's a wrap! Thank you to those who participated in this series - all series materials are available below.

About the Learning Series:

The Cultural Responsiveness Working Group (CRWG) aims to disseminate culturally appropriate information and provide technical assistance for the mental health field to improve access to culturally responsive mental health services. The CRWG recognizes the importance of Evidence-Based Practices (EBPs) in the work across the MHTTC Network, as well as acknowledging and promoting culturally inclusive mental health practices that exist in the mental health field. To explore this topic further, the CRWG conducted a six-part series of 90-minute listening sessions.


  1. Engage constituents in an interactive conversation about culturally inclusive mental health practices, including EBPs and Community-Defined Practices
  2. Explore strengths and barriers of Community-Defined Practices and elevate them as Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) Standards
  3. Identify ways to increase promotion of EBPs and Community-Defined Practices in technical assistance and trainings offered by the MHTTC Network


Mental health providers were encouraged to attend the conversations, and anyone in the mental health field who is interested in engaging in a conversation about cultural adaptations for EBPs and Community-Defined Practices.
