Improving Cultural Competence across the Sequential Intercept Model (SIM)

Event Dates

Across all intercepts of the Sequential Intercept Model (SIM), disproportionate representation of some racial and ethnic groups, including people with mental and substance use disorders, may stem from both community-based and criminal justice issues that hinder access to culturally responsive treatments and resources.

Efforts to reduce disproportionality and improve equity and inclusion should be based on a data-driven approach that identifies drivers of disparities, incorporates culturally responsive services, and considers for bias when implementing assessment tools and evidence-based practices.

This webinar will provide participants with practical strategies to reduce racial and ethnic disproportionality among individuals with mental and/or substance use disorders who are interfacing with the justice system.
