  • Linda Callejas


The Community-Defined Evidence Project (CDEP) aims to evolve and contribute to a developing body of knowledge that takes into consideration cultural values and beliefs and indigenous knowledge to assess the results of practices and treatments for Latinos.

CDEP builds on knowledge gained from a Research and Training Center for Children's Mental Health Project that investigated how the concept of cultural competence can be operationalized and implemented within systems of care to improve access to services and supports and reduce mental health disparities.
