Addressing Ethnoracial Disparities in Mental Health Risk, Assessment, and Service Delivery
April 19 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The timeliness of the topic ethnoracial disparities in mental health is an important one given the growing awareness of structural racism and ethnic discrimination that has been manifested in episodes of police violence and in disparities related to the COVID infection and death and ethnoracial disparities in that. Disparities in mental health access and service delivery have also been well documented. This webinar will address ethnoracial disparities in mental health risk, assessment and service delivery in Latinx populations. The conceptual basis of disparities will be covered first, folloed by promising topics for research on disparities in mental health, risk assessment, service access, and delivery. These topics are important for service providers to understand as the social conditions that lead to disparities affect all aspects of mental health, including neurobiology. They are often poorly measured, and if unaddressed, will continue to interfere with mental health care.
