Increase access to mental and behavioral health services
In collaboration with the Spanish American Center and local providers, CHNA9 supports a BIPOC Mental and Behavioral Health Providers Network that works to connect Black, Indigenous, and People of Color providers to one another and to BIPOC people entering the mental and behavioral health field.
Also in collaboration with the Spanish American Center and local providers, CHNA9 is supporting the development of a BIPOC Mental and Behavioral Health Crisis Toolkit that is culturally and linguistically accessible.
CHNA9 co-sponsors a regional Annual Prevention Conference with the Greater Gardner Community Action Team.
CHNA9 supports legislation that increases access to mental and behavioral health services and minimizes punishment and retraumatization.
