Education and Communication Workgroup

The Education and Communication Workgroup will educate on how to include all people and remove barriers that prevent them from participating in any aspect of the organization and mental health system and to provide a common, current, and comprehensive understanding of what it means to be a racially equitable and inclusive organization.
