Call-to-Action Series

The Call-to-Action (CTA) series is a cornerstone of the Behavioral Health Institute’s mission to confront race, equity & social justice (RESJ) within Washington State’s behavioral healthcare system. Our objective is to facilitate a dynamic learning environment that fosters knowledge expansion, cultivates partnerships, and drives behavioral health systems towards greater equity. Through the CTA series, participants engage in transformative dialogues centered on healing racial trauma, dismantling systemic racism, and addressing social injustices within the realms of mental health and substance use. It’s an opportunity to connect, learn, and collaborate on creating a more inclusive and just behavioral health landscape.
