How behavioral health problems are experienced, expressed, and treated often varies according to an individual's age, gender, race, or ethnic background, as well as other cultural phenomena. Learning more about the unique needs of racial and ethnic minorities can help healthcare providers, policymakers, educators, and people with mental health and substance use disorders support recovery and reduce discrimination and social exclusion.
This teleconference is one of a four-part teleconference series that focuses on efforts to overcome prejudice and discrimination associated with mental illness and promote mental health recovery in African American, American Indian and Alaska Native, Asian American and Pacific Islander, and Hispanic/Latino communities.
