Organizer The Pathways to Wellness African American Technical Assistance Program

Organizer of Mental Health in Minority Communities: Shifting from Talking to Action

Effective clinical care addresses the entirety of the person, (mind and body) their background and culture, their social context, and their individual and community experience.

Minority communities face many challenges overall and, in particular, the African American community encounters challenges and barriers in many parts of health care. More specifically with behavioral health, there are noted disparities in the treatment and outcomes for African Americans.

The African American Training and Technical Assistance program (AATA) supports behavioral health providers to eliminate these disparities through training and technical support.

We are here to support you in providing effective, responsive, and culturally relevant care.
