Cultural Competency Plan - The state of California continues to experience population growth in various ethnic groups. Population growth has presented several cultural and linguistic challenges. According to the Surgeon General's Report, Mental Health: Culture, Race and Ethnicity 2001 and the Little Hoover Commission 2000, "minorities receive treatment at a rate that is even lower than that of the general population. Ethnic minority populations appear to bear a greater burden from unmet mental health needs and suffer a greater loss to their overall health and productivity". "As California's population has grown in size and diversity, the mental health system has strained to keep up with the need for care (Little Hoover Commission)".
