Disparities and Cultural Competence (DACC)

The creation of DACC is one of four strategies identified in OhioMHAS’s strategic plan to address behavioral health disparities. A DACC Advisory Committee, comprised of OhioMHAS program staff and external community members, was formed with the goal of eliminating disparities and moving towards health equity. The committee identified the following objectives:

  • Identify core quality Indicators to effectively track and monitor performance 
  • Develop a business case for cultural and linguistic competency
  • Create a cultural and linguistic competence plan for all human services 
  • Identify best and promising practices based on lessons learned and develop a promising practice resource bank/learning community
