Enhancing Cultural Competency in Behavioral Health: Overview is the third in a four-part webinar series designed to address behavioral health disparities and improve cultural competence in behavioral health care for ethnic minority communities. Together, the four webinars make up the first portion of a comprehensive course that SAMHSA is offering to provide MFP Fellows with the knowledge to improve access to quality behavioral health services and outcomes for underserved populations.

The third and fourth webinars address cultural competency and will be presented by respected leaders in the field Drs. Kermit Crawford and Monnica Williams.

The series started in April and will run through August 2018. If you were unable to attend the first and second webinars of the series presented earlier this spring, please visit the Minority Fellowship Program Webinar ListingExternal Web Site Policy page to view those webinars.
