Cultural and Linguistic Competency Committee

About the Committee

The Cultural and Linguistic Competency Committee focuses on understanding inequities in California’s mental health system and identifying strategies to achieve equity. This work includes providing input on the Commission’s Racial Equity Action Plan, which is being developed by Commission staff who are participating in the Capitol Collaborative on Race and Equity (CCORE), a racial equity capacity-building program for State employees.

The Committee will identify ways to document and communicate inequities in California’s mental health system, highly model programs and other promising initiatives, and push for reforms to existing policies and practices.

The Committee members are:

  • Commissioner Mayra Alvarez (Chair)
