The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services created a Disparities and Cultural Competence (DACC) Advisory Committee, comprised of staff and external community members, with the goal of eliminating disparities and moving towards health equity. The DACC Advisory Committee developed a plan to ensure that service equity is a priority in the public behavioral health system by 2020. The committee identified the following objectives:

The plan involves using strategies from the National Partnership for Action’s 2011 National Stakeholder Strategy for Achieving Health Equity report which was developed to identify and address behavioral health disparities.
