Diversity & Health Equity

Racial/ethnic, gender, and sexual minorities often suffer from poor mental health outcomes due to multiple factors, such as inaccessibility of high-quality mental health care services, cultural stigma surrounding mental health care, and discrimination. APA is committed to ending disparities in mental health care by advocating policies that address the needs of evolving, diverse, underrepresented and underserved patient populations.

The resources below include the relevant press releases and advocacy resources to help psychiatrists advocate for the needs of minority and underserved populations.
