Addressing Immigrant Culture, Language, Diversity and Inclusion



Description:

Over the past couple of years much has been said about immigrants, refugees and those persons seeking asylum in the United States, but very little has been shared about the behavioral health needs of this population arriving in the United States during the most polarized political period in recent history. Most of them are escaping horrors of war, gangs, death, poverty and persecution and in need of behavioral health treatment and supports. After a major decline in immigrant families entering the United States during the previous administration, we are beginning to see the number of immigrants coming into the country increase and continue to deal with the reunification of unaccompanied minors. All of these issues call for specific tools to address the behavioral health needs of immigrants and many organizations are not equipped to do so. In this presentation, Pierluigi Mancini, PhD, addresses the immigrant culture and language and presents strategies to provide access and eliminate health disparities in mental health services.
