This tool was created to help mental health peer-operated programmes and self-help groups assess their own cultural competency. The toolkit defines cultural competency as the ability to interact effectively and comfortably with people from different cultures including people who differ from you in terms of race, ethnicity, culture, sexuality and other characteristics. It aims to help groups identify the ways in which their activities are responsive to culturally diverse peers and areas for improvement. Suggestions for specific action plans to grow cultural competency are provided.
