Join us for a virtual five-part forum series!
This series will identify the inequalities that diverse and marginalized groups face in the Behavioral Health System and share concepts of how to improve their experiences when seeking treatment.
We will focus on the following underserved populations: African American, Native American, Hispanic/Latinx and Hmong Ethnicity, people with whom English is not a primary language, including the deaf and hard of hearing populations, and the LGBTQ+ community.
These are all groups of people who are marginalized and who experience a disproportionate risk for behavioral health challenges. Access to needed services is constrained by marginalizing policies and practices.
