CPEHN is excited to release Accessing Mental Health in the Shadows: How Immigrants in California Struggle to Get Needed Care.The expansion of public mental health services over the last several decades, while significant, has not guaranteed access to mental health care for all California residents, especially undocumented immigrants.Over the past year, CPEHN interviewed fifteen county behavioral health leaders representing twelve California county behavioral health departments in order to evaluate the barriers that immigrant communities face when accessing mental health care.

CPEHN is excited to release the California Reducing Disparities Project: Strategic Plan to Reduce Mental Health Disparities. This report was developed by the California Pan-Ethnic Health Network in partnership with the California Reducing Disparities Project Partners.

The Strategic Plan to Reduce Mental Health Disparitieswas developed between 2012 and 2015 by the CaliforniaPan-Ethnic Health Network (CPEHN) with our partnersrepresenting diverse populations in California. The StrategicPlan is part of the California Reducing Disparities Project(CRDP), which is funded through the Mental HealthServices Act (MHSA, or Proposition 63).

CPEHN is excited to release Measuring Mental Health Disparities: A Roadmap & Recommendations for Implementation of the Mental Health Equity Act (AB 470, 2017).We know that health care coverage and access alone do not guarantee a reduction of disparities or improve health outcomes. Quality of care and the cultural appropriateness of care are critical components of ensuring health equity.Quality measurement in mental health has historically lagged behind quality and performance improvement in health care, but it is a key component of achieving equity. Therefore, CPEHN convened an Advisory Committee to develop a recommended set of quality metrics for adoption by the State of California. Through this conversation, a number of themes emerged that are reflected in the report, “Measuring Mental Health Disparities”.
