Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging with CLAS! (Webinar)

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging with CLAS!

The mental and emotional well-being of diverse populations are exacerbated by social, environmental, and economic conditions that have been identified as barriers affecting help seeking behaviors. Moreover, research is indicating how organizational staff providing services to diverse communities are increasingly experiencing their own wellness challenges dealing with client loss and overwhelming responsibilities, and can benefit from work environments that consider and support their wellbeing. 

The National Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) Standards provide a framework to assist organizations to work more effectively and resourcefully with diverse populations. This interactive training will instruct on how to implement the National CLAS Standards within behavioral health care settings to build organizational capacity and provide culturally informed and linguistically conducive services that enhance recovery and wellness pathways, integrate strategies to reduce racial and ethnic disparities, and advance behavioral health equity and inclusion for both communities and the professionals that provide care.
