Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (AANHPI-CoE)
The purpose of this Center of Excellence (CoE) is to advance the behavioral health equity of AA, NH, and PI communities. The AANHPI-CoE will (1) develop and disseminate culturally-informed, evidence-based behavioral health information and (2) provide technical assistance and training on issues related to addressing behavioral health disparities in AA, NH, and PI communities.
The AANHPI-CoE will serve as a resource to behavioral healthcare providers, community-based and faith-based organizations, research institutions, and federal entities. SAMHSA expects this program will help reduce the impact of behavioral health-related disparities on AA, NH, and PI communities.
