Free Course on Health Equity Planning
Community mental health and non-profit organization staff are invited to join CONNECTing with CLAS consultants for a free "Health Equity Planning Crash Course" from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm on August 9 in Rocky Hill.
The training will provide an overview on developing and strengthening organizational plans to promote health equity and engage youth and families using the CLAS (Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services) standards. Over the past 4 years, the CONNECTing with CLAS initiative has helped 40 community mental health agencies and non-profits develop Health Equity Plans by participating in a six month cohort. A new accelerated cohort will be starting this Fall for interested agencies. This work is part of the State's CONNECTing Children and Families to Care initiative to improve children's behavioral health systems and services. CHDI serves as the Coordinating Center for CONNECT.
