Solano Pride Center was one of several partner organizations in the Solano County behavioral health improvement initiative.

Latinos, Filipino Americans and LGBTQ+ individuals in Solano County now have much greater access to mental health care services,  thanks to a major initiative led by UC Davis Health. 

The initiative involving the Center for Reducing Health Disparities (CRHD) and the university’s Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC) is part of a community-engaged, quality improvement project that spanned five years. It resulted in the cultural transformation of the county’s Behavioral Health Division and several of its partner community-based organizations in seven cities.

Watch a video summarizing the project.
