To equip our community's service delivery professionals with tools and best practices to support racial and ethnic minorities who face mental health challenges. We seek to help professionals, who work with these individuals on a daily basis, gain a better understanding of the underlying issues of these individuals' behaviors, as well as how to best respond in a positive, healthy, and impactful way. We also intend to provide attendees with information on local mental health resources, as well as resources for continued learning opportunities.
Nurses, EMS professionals, substance abuse counselors, social workers, educators, and other healthcare providers.
