One Size Does Not Fit All: Closing the Mental Health Disparities Gap for African-American Communities
Start Date: February 24, 2015
End Date: February 24, 2015
2:00 PM EST-3:30 PM EST
Support Technical Assistance and Resources Center (STAR) Webinar
The California Reducing Disparities Project (CRDP) recently released the Strategic Plan to Reduce Mental Health Disparities which was developed in partnership with the California Pan-Ethnic Health Network (CPEHN) and workgroups from five populations – African Americans, Asians and Pacific Islanders (API), Latinos, Native Americans, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) communities. Building on their 2012 report We Ain’t Crazy! Just Coping with a Crazy System, the African American Strategic Planning Workgroup developed a video Beyond the Beat and the Lyrics, and a Facilitator’s Guide to increase dialogue and understanding of the impact of stigma and discrimination on the mental health status of transition age African-American men.
Join the Support Technical Assistance and Resources Center (STAR) for a provocative and informative webinar presentation on recommendations for systems transformation to reduce disparities that may apply or be useful in your community.
