Black Cultural Awareness

Our mission is to bring awareness to issues facing the black community and provide resources for solutions by promoting Education, Wellness, and Leadership


Organizational Education

  • We aim to create and implement curriculum that focuses on diversity and cultural bias within the mental health field.
  • We offer information and education on issues that disproportionately affect the black community (heart disease, women’s health, diabetes, etc.).

Diverse Representation

  • A&C does not tolerate discrimination.  Our Anti-Discrimination Policy ensures all employees are treated fairly with dignity and respect.
  • We have reviewed our internal policies and procedures to ensure inclusive processes are in place.

Community Involvement

  • A&C is committed to addressing and providing solutions around mental health barriers and stigma within the black community. 
  • We are committed to partnering with organizations in the community to be a preferred resource for issues affecting the black community, mental health, addiction, child welfare, and other health and community concerns.

Where We Stand

  • We value diversity of thought and the synergy of many voices working together.

  • We embrace the uniqueness of black culture and seek to create work environments where staff can be their authentic selves.

  • We cultivate the development and growth of black leadership.

  • We promote physical and behavioral health with a focus on issues that affect the black community in disparate ways.

A Word From Our CEO

The need for equality permeates the very mission and services we provide to persons who face all kinds of discrimination and we stand shoulder to shoulder with those protesting injustice, hatred, and racism.

To lend not only our voices but provide direct support to the black community. Adult and Child Health is proud to donate to the MLK Center of Indianapolis, a multifaceted nonprofit organization providing resources and services to inner city Indy youth, while emphasizing civil rights teachings and philosophies of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Adult and Child joins with community organizations, community members, partners and local officials who share our beliefs about the basic rights and dignities all person should have.

A&C’s vision of building “caring communities where every child, adult, and family have the opportunity to live healthy, happy lives” cannot be more applicable than in this critical social movement. We are dedicated to making this vision a reality.
