Cultural Responsiveness Committee (CRC) Member Recruitment

Published:  January 13, 2020

The Sonoma County Department of Health Services Behavioral Health Division (DHS-BHD) is currently recruiting members for DHS-BHD’s Cultural Responsiveness Committee (CRC). Sonoma County is expanding the CRC to broaden the diversity of the committee, assist in developing trainings for staff, and help to refine the work of the committee.

The Cultural Responsiveness Committee has historically been comprised of DHS-BHD staff. The membership is now being open to the community, including consumers/peers/family members and a diverse representation of the county’s demographics (examples: race, ethnicity, LGBTQAI, faith based, transition age youth, housing/homelessness, disability, geographic).  

There are 6 DHS-BHD staff currently on the committee, and DHS-BHD is requesting applications from the community to add 6-8 community committee members. Meetings will be held every other month, and there will be an initial orientation for new members. 

If you are interested in this opportunity, please complete and submit the application by January 31, 2020 to:

Bruce Robbins:  Bruce.Robbins@sonoma-county.org and

Melissa Ladrech:  Melissa.Ladrech@sonoma-county.org
