Connections: Discussing culturally competent care with the Black Healers Network

The Black Healers Network of Greater Rochester is a newly organized group of Black health providers whose mission is to provide culturally competent care for Black patients. The group released a statement following the death of Daniel Prude, calling on local, state, and federal governments to adapt several recommendations for addressing mental health crisis intervention.

This hour, we talk with members of the network about their goals, their recommendations, and the impact that culturally competent care can have in physical and mental health outcomes. Our guests:
