Mental health in the African-American community will be discussed at this Feb. 26 symposium. "We Ain't Crazy! Just Coping with a Crazy System," is a population report from the California Reducing Disparities Project (CRDP) of the State Department of Public Health.

Editors of the report will present data from the statewide assessment of disparities in mental health services for African Americans in California. The report is part of a multi-year effort of the California Department of Public Health to identify community-defined solutions and practices to eliminate disparities for major populations (African Americans, Asian-Pacific Islanders, Latinos, and Native Americans) and groups (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning).
