This toolkit is designed to help community based organizations increase the cultural competency of their mental health services. The handbook walks organizations through what organizational cultural competence is, what individual cultural competence is, and how to effectively change an organization's culture and structure to include cultural competence. Each chapter starts and ends with critical questions intended to serve as a tool for assessing an organization's embodiment of cultural competence and whether or not it possess the systemic elements and dynamic processes which are needed to promote organizational change.
