500 The Write on Race Cultural Humility Training: Improving Mental Health Care in Juvenile Corrections*

Nearly 60,000 youths are incarcerated in juvenile corrections in the U.S., many with serious mental health needs. Though these numbers vary by state, what remains consistent are the significant racial, ethnic, and cultural disparities, highlighting the need for high quality culturally sensitive services and supports. In addition to skills like openness, self-awareness, egoless, and critique, the Write on Race cultural humility training includes treating identities as assets, empathy and interdependence, self-advocacy, and social activism.
