The Office of Multicultural Health Equity (OMHE) functions to enhance the delivery of DMHAS services for mental health and substance use disorders in a way that acknowledges the impact of individual differences on client treatment, differences such as race, ethnic or cultural background, age, gender, sexual orientation, and physical or mental status. 

The goal of the Office of Multicultural Health Equity is to assure that cultural competence is an integral quality of all services that DMHAS provides for people of every ethnic/cultural group.
