Cultural Competency Committee

The Cultural Competency Committee is comprised of county Behavioral Health staff and community members representing varying minority ethnicities and cultural groups to address the concerns of the cultural communities in the county through evaluation and monitoring Behavioral Health services delivery and practice.

Cultural Competence Plan

El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA), Behavioral Health Division (BHD), originally developed its Cultural Competence Plan in 2010 and has continued to update it annually.
