Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) 

BIPOC Mental Health Data/Who we treat: 

According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), as of 2020, 85% of total individuals who reported having any mental illness in the U.S. were people who identify as Hispanic, Black, Asian, or Multi-racial. 

Mental health disorders are more pervasive and last longer in communities of color. People that identify as Black or African American are 7.2 times more likely to live in locations that lack access to mental health care, according to the American Psychological Association. Communities of color are also more likely to receive lesser quality of care than their White/Caucasian counterparts and thus are more likely to end services prematurely, the American Counseling Association reported. Studies suggest that Asian Americans are at a high risk for mental illness due to assimilation, but only 1 in 2 of them choose to seek help as a result of feared cultural incompetence from providers.

Understanding is the key to success

At CCG we strive to ensure that we maintain dignity and respect for all communities of color and provide access to the same level and quality of care across all populations and communities. We acknowledge the specificity of how individual and group experiences can shape an individual and their connections with others and systems. It is important to acknowledge the stories born out of oppression, persecution, and abuse while finding the immeasurable strength in each community and culture that fosters resilience.
