Considering Identity and Cultural Dimensions - from NAMI

From the National Alliance on Mental Illness:

Mental health care must be tailored to the individual — to their identity, culture and lived experience. A person must feel comfortable and understood by their mental health professional for a relationship to be effective. When a mental health professional understands the role that cultural differences play in the diagnosis of a condition and incorporates cultural needs and differences into a person’s care, it significantly improves outcomes.
