Given the goal of Healthy People 2030, to achieve health equity, eliminate disparities and improve the health of all groups, there is the need for coalition building and strategies for promoting positive mental health outcomes for youth of color. Community-, faith- and clinic-based organizations and their professionals play a key role in promoting health among various groups, including racial and ethnic minorities, and therefore need to embed cultural and linguistic competencies into their practice for successful care outcome and in addressing health disparities. This workshop will provide a unique learning opportunity for participants on prevention and effective strategies, which promote positive mental health outcomes for youth of color.
