Increasing Understanding towards Justice in the Provision of Mental Health Care

Implicit Bias Training: Designed to meet the Michigan requirement but is not Michigan state specific

Physical and Mental health professionals cannot ignore the impact that various

forms of bias play into the barriers to and disparities experienced in the delivery

of care. For instance, the concerns of women who present for treatment are

more often ignored than those of men who present for treatment. And, the

concerns of Black women, in particular, are ignored at their peril. This course

explains the role of implicit and explicit bias in defining the systems that provide

physical and mental health care in America. This course also includes strategies

for individual professionals, and professionals in collaboration, to use in order to

reduce disparities in access to and delivery of physical and mental health care

services. This course meets the “Implicit Bias Training” requirements outlined

under Michigan State Public Health Code.
