This paper highlights the unique mental/behavioral health needs of native populations and outlines a culturally competent plan to improve behavioral health and well-being for Native Americans across California including community-defined solutions and recommendations from across the diverse Native American populations of tribal, rural, and urban California.
This Action Plan seeks to advance social, health, and racial equity by following a three-part strategy of normalizing conversations about equity, organizing government to achieve equity, and operationalizing practices and policies to promote equity.
This toolkit provides overview on culturally responsiveness, CLAS standards, providing appropriate cultural and linguistic services according to CLAS standards, principles of community engagement, recommendations from cultural sample groups, policy and practice recommendations, accessing and providing resources, and support for staff and evaluation guides and templates.

Millions of people in the U.S. are affected by mental illness each year. It’s important to measure how common mental illness is, so we can understand its physical, social and financial impact — and so we can show that no one is alone. These numbers are also powerful tools for raising public awareness, stigma-busting and advocating for better health care.
