A Right to Heal: Mental Health in Diverse Communities a Listening Session with the American Indian and Alaska Native Community

In 2020, the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC) contracted CPEHN (California Pan-Ethnic Health Network) for 3 years to engage and uplift diverse voices to influence what local programs and services are funded in their communities. Year 1 and Year 2 accomplishments can be found here.

At the local level, the Indian Health Center of Santa Clara Valley (IHC) collaborated with CPEHN and its statewide partner the California Consortium for Urban Indian Health (CCUIH) to facilitate listening sessions with community members (23 participants) including American Indian and Alaskan Native service members and youth.
