The Great Lakes ATTC offers this training for behavioral healthcare professionals in HHS Region 5: IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, and WI. This training is offered in response to a need identified by stakeholders in our region.

This interactive training will help participants learn about the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS), and how they can be implemented to improve culturally informed care, reduce racial and ethnic disparities, and advance equity and inclusion in behavioral health care.

There is a limited capacity for this training.

2. Define health equity and inclusion and correlation to patient and provider challenges in service delivery
3. State benefits of integrating CLAS in potential technological approaches to patient care and support
