Through this project, the Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality (GCPI) and Mental Health America (MHA) explored cross-sector and -systems approaches to addressing the relationship between behavioral health and economic disadvantage for the lowest-income individuals, families, and communities. Using a research-based, holistic approach, the project has aimed to identify innovative ways to engage and coordinate community assets to transform the delivery of whole-person, whole-community behavioral health supports.
Mental Health America understands that racism undermines mental health. Therefore, we are committed to anti-racism in all that we do. This means that we pledge to work against individual racism, interpersonal racism, and institutional racism in all their forms.
