According to the U.S. Census, Native Americans make up 1.7 percent of California’s total population.. As the Native Vision report documented, disparities exist in mental health for Native Americans due to inappropriate systems of care, historical policies that created trauma, racism and discrimination, and other barriers.
Each Mind Matters is committed to sharing resources for all Californians, including Native American communities across the state. Below is a list of resources created to promote mental health in Native American communities.
