Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion with CLAS! (Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services)

This in-person presentation is part of ASAP's 23rd Annual Conference in Albany, NY. 

For decades, research data has documented poor behavioral health treatment outcomes for racial and ethnic communities. The mental and emotional well-being of these and other underserved populations are exacerbated by social, environmental, and economic conditions. These factors are identified as barriers affecting decision making and help seeking behaviors.

The National Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) Standards provide a framework that assists professionals in becoming more culturally responsive to the needs and beliefs of diverse populations, regard the importance of preferred language and communication supports, and other patient level challenges.

CLAS informs on culturally informed and linguistically conducive services that enhance recovery and wellness pathways, while advancing health equity and inclusion in care.

CEUs are not offered for this training.
