Cultural competence is our mission at NAMI and this manual, part of a series of resources developed by NAMI’s Multicultural Action Center to support successful implementation of the NAMI Standards of Excellence, is meant to equip NAMI State Organizations and NAMI Affiliates with information and tools to meaningfully engage diverse communities. Specifically, this manual focuses on cultural competence and on how to develop a successful multicultural outreach plan.
