Keeping Kids in the Classroom Series: Cultural Influences on Mental Health Training
Tanika Johnson, Ed.D., M.A., LPC-MHSP, LMHC, NCC, BC-TMH, CCTP

The Cultural Influences on Mental Health course examines the historical roots and intergenerational context of the United States’ mental healthcare system and the persistence of systemic socioeconomic inequity. We will explore the Western ideology and philosophies of mental healthcare for diverse populations, cultural assumptions and myths, and causation of mental health disorders on race, identity, and ethnicity.

 Additionally, the course evaluates the impact of cultural assumptions and blind spots, conscious and unconscious provider bias, mental health diagnosis and treatment disparities, and cultural perceptions of trust across the mental health sector.
