Why Are Culture And Language Important ?
We know that America is a country of many races and cultures, and with each passing year more health care providers are recognizing the challenge of caring for patients from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds.
Health care professionals and managers should have a basic understanding of the impact of culture and language on health care delivery in order to efficiently organize services that meet the needs of both the Institution and a diverse patient population.
El Paso is no different from the rest of America, that is why Border Children’s Mental Health Collaborative has taken the first steps to inform, train, and educate mental health care providers, staff, and care givers on the importance of becoming more culturally and linguistically competent organizationally and individually.
We are in the process of developing a presentation to address some of the issues faced by our clients and professionals.
More of how Border Children’s Mental Health Collaborative is addressing cultural and linguistic competency within the El Paso County will soon be available on this website.
