Online Webinar
Led By: 
The National Technical Assistance Center for Children's Mental Health

Disparities in behavioral health persist with disturbing intensity, but new efforts have emerged at the federal level. The Affordable Care Act provides renewed emphasis on addressing this persistent problem. Please join us to learn about the mission, goals and activities of the newly created SAMHSA Office of Behavioral Health Equity and the current plans related to behavioral health in the Office of Minority Health. In addition, learn about the HHS Action Plan to End Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities and the National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities. Let's plan to magnify the impact of these programs by learning how to link with these initiatives to facilitate change in your own organization, community and state and how to support the work of these federal offices.
