The purpose of the Cultural Competence Advisory Board is to serve as advisors to BHRS administrators, managers and line staff. The charge of the board is to examine, analyze and make recommendations about promising and current mental health services and practices that are culturally sensitive, appropriate and responsive to our diverse consumer community. Additionally, the board shall identify barriers and challenges within BHRS system that prevent consumers from adequately accessing needed mental health and substance use services. Barriers may include, but are not limited to, stigma and discrimination, language and/or lack of cultural awareness.

Mental Health and Substance Use Services (MHSUS) changed its name to Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS).  As such, all references in existing departmental policies and procedures to MHSUS can be understood to reference BHRS as well.
