The National Center for Cultural Competence (NCCC) maintains a pool of consultants that includes researchers, evaluators, and providers of training, technical assistance or consultation.
Their expertise relates to cultural and linguistic competence in a broad range of health, mental health, education and human service arenas. Consultants have experience at the local, state, regional, national, and international levels.
The NCCC uses a comprehensive application process to identify each consultant's areas of expertise. Applicants are carefully screened including interviews with at least two references.
There are two ways to identify a potential consultant.
- Find a consultant by geographic location. Use this map to view information on consultants by state.
- Use the pull-down menu and search for consultants by area of expertise.
E-mail the NCCC at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain contact information about a consultant.
The NCCC collaborates with the Technical Assistance Partnership for Child and Family Mental Health, at the American Institutes for Research. For additional consultants with expertise in cultural and linguistic competence in systems of care and children's mental health please visit: http://www.tapartnership.org/about/consultantPool.php
The NCCC acts as a broker attempting to match consultation needs with appropriate consultants. Specific details related to the consultation (e.g. fees and logistics) are negotiated directly with the consultant. The NCCC does not incur costs for these consultations.
