What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Mental illness is alarmingly high among black immigrant and refugee populations yet are seldom reported due to factors, such as culture, language, illiteracy, immigration, socioeconomics, and religion. The Black, Caribbean, African and Refugee population that GTR serves demonstrate mistrust of government systems, frequent mobility, a history of discrimination, and a strong culture that stigmatizes mental health behaviors. They also bear scars from their difficult past and recent trauma. Unaware of processes pertinent to their well-being, they are underrepresented in NYC’s larger mental health campaign.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Over the next 1-3 years, GTR will, directly and indirectly, reduce individual patient’s symptoms by 70%, and increase retention by 40% defined as patients staying in treatment for at least 14 sessions - within the Caribbean and immigrant population.

1. Culturally relevant training for clinicians 2. Provide evidence-based treatment (e.g. CBT) 3. Providing linguistic and culturally appropriate treatment. 4. Improve attitudes about Mental Health which will create buy-in among clients, by providing at least 3 trainings every year.

1. Licensed Clinicians 2. Committed Board Members 3. Staff trained in Culture and Trauma

1. Patients are given surveys about attitudes towards mental health, and how culture plays a role in their retention. 3. After Clinicians perform CBT one can measure patient progress using PHQ-9 4. GTR creates a comprehensive observation, professional development and evaluation protocol to track and evaluate clinician’s success in implementing culturally responsive practices: a. Evaluations take place quarterly, including prior to clinicians seeing clients. b. Professional developments are provided to clinicians to improve practice. c. More observations are held to track growth.

GTR has partnered with University Researchers' and we now have a list of pre and post-assessments that measure attitude about mental health and culture for clients, as well as pre and post-test for symptoms (i.e. PHQ-9); and pre and post-test for staff training. We have also developed an observational tool and professional development tool. We have also moved into a new space (our clinic), where we are seeing the client's that illustrate the demographic population we want to reach.
