When we enter our favorite restaurant or venue, we enter with expectations of how we will be treated and what the experience will be like for ourselves and our loved ones, and most likely without much thought we anticipate good outcomes. How can mental health practitioners, leaders and mental wellness advocates foster these same expectations within our organizations and services? What actions can we implement to ensure that ALL persons and communities expect positive experiences and equitable outcomes?
The first goal of this webinar is to explore behavioral health inequities that exist among racial, ethnic, gender, religious and other minorities in the United States. The second goal is to identify strategies for fostering and sustaining equitable mental health outcomes for diverse populations in behavioral health and mental wellness services.
