Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Resources

DEI Commitment Statement from ADAA 

Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) is committed to highlighting diversity, equity and inclusion as a core organizational value to promote BIPOC-specific mental health research and professionals. As an organization that has a large global impact and a diverse professional network, we acknowledge racial injustices and societal inequalities have caused BIPOC communities harm. The impact of these inequalities coupled with health disparities has helped us affirm the importance of health equity throughout our organization and its resources. ADAA recognizes that combatting societal, organizational and health inequalities is an ongoing commitment. Therefore, we remain committed to highlighting and encouraging BIPOC-specific mental health research and professionals throughout our organization. As such, we support racial justice and embrace diversity, equity and inclusion as core values.
