Cultural Humility and Responsiveness in Behavioral Health Care

The National Alliance on Mental Illness recognizes that current environmental factors are traumatizing people of color, which as a risk factor can also initiate or increase stress and substance use, and exacerbate mental illness. Provider bias in stigmatic language or other microaggressions can also affect a client’s capacity to respond to clinical services, and are often identified in research as components of poor behavioral health outcomes.

Culturally responsive organizations integrate cultural humility in all levels of practice and service delivery, providing highest levels of patient centered care and building equity with persons of color and other marginalized communities. This interactive virtual training will review how to integrate cultural humility in practice for person centered care, using core motivational interviewing (OARS) communication skills, and demonstrate how culturally informed care increases potential for patient recovery and wellness for racial, ethnic and other underserved populations.
