What is REMHDCO?
REMHDCO stands for the Racial & Ethnic Mental Health Disparities Coalition. Since late 2007, REMHDCO has been a statewide coalition of individuals from non-profit state wide and local organizations whose mission is to work to reduce mental health disparities through advocacy for racial and ethnic communities.
REMHDCO is the only statewide organization of its kind. We are often the only ones at meetings or hearings who advocate for culturally competent services, outreach to underserved/ unserved/inappropriately served communities, and reducing mental health disparities for racial and ethnic communities.
Who does REMHDCO represent?
Underserved, unserved, and inappropriately served racial and ethnic communities including: Latino, Asian/Pacific Islander, Native American, and African American. REMHDCO also represents other underserved groups such as: non-English and limited English speaking individuals, immigrants and refugees, and the Muslim community.
