Event Details

Presenter: Amy Irby-Shasanmi

Title: Mental Health and Cultural Competence

Research shows that racial minorities do not receive equal treatment when seeking mental health care. This webinar address how culture, one values, beliefs, norms, language, and practices shape how one experiences mental illness, whether one seeks treatment, and whether one follows a prescribed treatment plan.  To help reduce disparity in treatment, mental health practitioners need to understand and respect cultural differences found among racial and ethnic minorities.  Cultural competence increases one's ability to effectively work with diverse populations.

The Equity Institute on Race, Culture & Transformative Action at IUPUI has partnered with the Division of Mental Health & Addiction to provide an online cultural competency training program.
