The APA prepares all members to be culturally competent psychiatrists and aids in eradicating mental health disparities by creating programs that align with APA policy by supporting and increasing diversity within APA; serving the needs of evolving, diverse, underrepresented and underserved patient populations; and working to end disparities in mental health care.
