Understanding the root causes of health inequities and its link to the social determinants of health (SDoH) is critical to addressing health disparities in behavioral health services in an integrated primary care setting. Participants of this Roundtable will engage in a rich discussion with subject matter experts (SMEs) and health center staff at all levels, on what it means to develop a practice culture that values health equity and addresses health disparities in behavioral health in a primary care setting. By the end of this Roundtable, participants will be able to: 

  1. Describe strategies for addressing health disparities in behavioral health among their patient’s population, 
  2. Identify key drivers that contribute to and minimize the impact of these disparities, and  
  3. Identify provider- and organizational-level strategies for achieving equity in a COVID-19 environment.   

This Roundtable discussion will be a learning opportunity and safe space for participants to engage with SMEs as well as ask questions, voice opinions, and hear the thoughts of others. Participants will agree on a specific topic(s) to discuss and debate, and each member of the discussion is treated as a peer. Topics for consideration include: building a culturally competent workforce reflective and inclusive of the populations served; understanding implicit bias and the impact on behavioral health care and outcomes; addressing client self-stigma regarding behavioral health services; advancing health literacy and translation services.
