The Alliance: Mental Health Support for Black and Brown Communities

The Alliance For the Improvement of Black and Brown Health Outcomes program was created to reduce and improve the mental health disparities in Black and Brown communities. Our We focus will be on reducing mental health disparities and increasing delivery of evidence-based interventions among Black and Brown residents, by 1) Enhancement of direct mental health services, 2) Increasing the capacity of the community through the training of health promoters and youth advocates in mental health issues and the resources available to them, 3) Increasing the number of Black and Brown individuals entering healthcare professions, specifically mental health professions; and 4) Increasing the number of minority-led non-profits in the community providing mental health services.
