Description and Committee Charge

 

The RCCMHC Cultural Outreach Committee advises the Governing Board on services, policies, procedures, and systems-building practices to ensure they are culturally affirming and responsive as well as linguistically appropriate.

  • Members work with local providers and cultural communities to identify needs, to analyze results, and to develop recommendations for addressing service gaps. 

  • Members enhance cultural humility among community providers through outreach and education, including conferences, dialogues, publications, and trainings.

  • Members advise the Governing Board on evidence-based, practice-informed, and community-defined approaches, including promising practices which may be new or emerging.

All are welcome! Come as you are. Join with or without video or call in. Your time is appreciated.
