The Cultural & Linguistic Responsiveness (CLR) Toolkit was created by NAMI California in partnership with the Union of Pan Asian Communities (UPAC) and Pacific Clinics with funding from the California Mental Health Services Authority (CALMHSA) with feedback from the CA Reducing Disparities Project. The goal of this toolkit is to assist local affiliates and partner organizations in beginning to address the mental health disparities that exist among communities from diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds (i.e. Latinx, LGBTQ, Veteran, etc.) and better serve these individuals.
This interactive webinar will introduce the updated toolkit, present previous successes and challenges, and encourage affiliates/organizations to increase and improve diversity engagement efforts in a meaningful and effective way.
