The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services (SAMHSA) Office of Behavioral Health Equity invites you to join the Behavioral Health Equity Best Practices for African Americans event on Monday, February 5 at 1:30-3:00 pm EST. This dynamic webinar is a collaboration with SAMHSA’s Division of Children and School Mental Health, Mental Health Promotion Branch, Suicide Promotion Branch, and the 988 & Behavioral Health Crisis Coordinating Office.
Behavioral health equity and access to high-quality and affordable healthcare services and support is the right of all individuals, regardless of race, age, ethnicity, gender, ability, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, or geographical location. Advancing behavioral health equity means working to ensure that every individual has the opportunity to be as healthy as possible.
During this virtual Black History Month celebration, participants will learn how collaborations to leverage best practices can advance health equity within African American populations and for underserved communities.
During this webinar, participants will:
- Increase awareness of best practices in health equity for African Americans
- Understand resiliency and the impact of trauma within African American communities
- Learn about the impact of training and capacity building programs for African American providers
The event will also be shared on Facebook Live at fb.com/nned.net and closed captioning will be available through Zoom.
