Updated & Featured Resources

The California Reducing Disparities Project (CRDP) is a first of its kind, PEI (Prevention and Early Intervention) initiative funded by the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA, or Proposition 63). This statewide initiative aims to pair community driven mental health solutions with rigorous data for each of the 35 pilot projects. In doing this, the data and evaluation works to identify solutions for the communities in California that have historically been underserved, excluded, and offered inappropriate care.
