DEI Discussion Series

 The United States is rapidly becoming more multiracial and multiethnic. However, the mental health field remains largely defined by ethnocentric monoculturalism. Consequently, there is an urgent need for culturally informed mental health practices to reduce persistent racial/ethnic inequities in the diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric disorders affecting children from historically marginalized racial/ethnic backgrounds.
