CLAS Toolkit: Advancing Health Equity and Racial Justice in Children’s Behavioral Health

This free, self-guided toolkit is designed to help child- and family-serving organizations develop their own Health Equity Plans to advance health equity and to reduce racial injustice and health disparities within their organizations, services, and communities.

The toolkit is based on the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health and Health Care (National CLAS Standards) and follows a four phase process for implementing those standards developed by the Connecticut Department of Children and Families, CHDI, Beacon Health Options, and Health & Equity, LLC.
