The Cultural Providers Network of the Twin Cities, Minnesota
Jordan (Hurt), Tera
On opening day of the 2016 NCFR Annual Conference, a group of local educators, researchers and practitioners from the Twin Cities presented an overview of their collaborative, the Cultural Providers Network (CPN). The group’s major goal was described as improving quality access to mental health services for underserved populations. In addition to sharing effective approaches to providing culturally competent care, CPN members worked together on innovative research projects. The session briefly reviewed the group’s history and suggested ideas for par-ticipants interested in starting similar collaborations in their home locations.
