This API population report is one of the end products of the Phase One of California Reducing Disparities Project API Strategic Planning Workgroup (CRDP API-SPW). This report is the culmination of this effort that documents the disparities experienced in the community. It also offers recommendations to reduce these disparities. CRDP is funded from the Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) portion of the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA). It was administered by the Office of Multicultural Services (OMS) of the California Department of Mental Health since 2010 and will be administered by Office of Health Equality (OHE) of the California Department of Public Health (DPH). MHSA is designed with the unserved, under-served, and inappropriately served in mind. CRDP is one of a kind and is the largest investment in the nation to look into diverse community perspectives on mental health disparities.
