Synopsis: This study presents findings from a survey assessing cultural competence of mental health providers connected to systems of care and other community-based providers serving at least one child from the system of care. A small set of items on the survey focused on the issue of cultural competence relative to “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” of clients and their families. System of care providers differed significantly from other providers in their knowledge, attitudes, and practices of culturally competent service provision. Findings also show that characteristics of organizations where providers are employed are significant factors in the cultural competence of the providers.
