An Interfaith Dialogue on the Crisis Care Needs of Faith Communities

Faith leaders share about the behavioral health crises affecting diverse faith communities and the critical role they play as a support system during times of crisis. This panel was a part of the “Anti-Racism in California’s Crisis Continuum of Care” conference, presented by Crisis and Recovery Enhancement.

This dialogue is intended to help providers understand the dynamics of supporting communities of faith in culturally appropriate and responsive ways, especially during the pandemic. In addition, they talk about the ways that health providers can align with faith leaders and their communities to build stronger systems of care for people experiencing crises.
