The US HHS Office of Minority Health, in collaboration with CIHS, has developed
this webinar to inform, educate and train community-based behavioral health
and/primary care organizations and practitioners in culturally and
linguistically competent integrated care delivery models with the goal of
reducing health disparities. Topics to be covered by subject matter experts
include: ongoing barriers to care, behavioral health approaches in primary care
settings, the new CLAS standards and approaches to assisting providers in
delivering quality care to racial and ethnic minority communities. Research and
seminal reports demonstrate racial and ethnic minorities and populations with
limited English proficiency continue to experience health disparities.
Comorbid conditions compound mental health and physical health problems.
The webinar will provide specific information about how culturally and
linguistically competent integrated care can improve accessibility and the
quality of physical health and behavioral health services.
