Bridges Healthcare's Commitment to Health Equity

Bridges Healthcare provides integrated behavioral health services to all people in a welcoming and respectful manner that values the inherent worth of every individual, regardless of race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. The agency is committed to addressing the health inequities that exist internally and within the communities it serves to improve access to services in a culturally competent and inclusive manner.

Bridges is committed to the following to address health equity and promote an inclusive environment:

  • Establishment of an internal committee that provides resources to staff to increase knowledge around diversity, equity and inclusion.
  • Staff training to raise awareness around social and racial injustice and strategies to address these issues in treatment.
  • Regular review and update of policies around cultural competency, access to care, anti-discrimination and person centered care.
  • The development of a health equity plan that lays out the agency's commitment to providing care based on standards set for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS).
