Got Culture?

Exploring the Relationship between Culture and
Children’s Mental Health

Cultural and linguistic competence (CLC) is a core value of system of care (SOC) communities. It is defined as: “a set of congruent behaviors, attitudes, and policies that come together in a system, agency, or amongst professionals and enables that system, agency, or those professionals to work effectively in cross-cultural situations.”  Cultural and linguistic competence is the responsibility of every SOC team member, the governance structure and community partners.

Don’t miss national and state speakers present on cultural competence in children’s mental health, working with LGBTQ youth, communication and language services, and best practices in your communities.

All should be champions of promoting, infusing and implementing CLC within their system and broader community. This training day will allow children’s mental health staff and leadership explore the aspects of cultural and linguistic competence and how to apply culturally and linguistically appropriate practices to everyday service delivery and operations.
