The Black and African Heritage Underserved Cultural Communities (UsCC) subcommittee was established under the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA), with the goal to reduce disparities, increase mental health access, and to produce stakeholder priorities which will advise DMH’s action planning toward development and improvement of its services and partnerships to better engage underserved and marginalized cultural and ethnic communities in Los Angeles County.
This subcommittee provides DMH with community-driven and culturally specific capacity-building project recommendations and/or project concepts for implementation to increase mental health access, awareness, promotion, and decrease stigma with the ultimate goal to reduce cultural and ethnic disparities in access to care and service delivery.
