Below is a list of organized ongoing efforts: A. Early Career Faculty Liaison Dr. Mariella Self, Any early career faculty member in our Department (Psychology, Psychiatry, and Social Work) is welcome to contact Mariella Self for assistance with mentoring or resource needs. B. Texas Regional Psychiatry-Psychology Minority Mentor Network-TRPMMN Director of TRPMMN, Dr. Toi Harris (BCM), and Assistant Director, Kathy Scott-Gurnell (UTHSC-H). Multiple faculty members from BCM, UTHSC-H and the community are actively involved in the planning and implementation of events. The TRPMMN was established in 2007 as a regional extension of the American Psychiatric Association's (APA) National Minority Fellowship Program. APA's Office of National and Minority Affairs, Baylor College of Medicine, the University of Texas-Health Science Center, national and community partners have joined to participate in this collaborative effort. The goals are three-fold: 1) To create educational, mentoring, and career opportunities for members of underserved or underrepresented groups; 2) To support programming that assists with the reduction of mental health disparities; and 3) To promote the acquisition of cultural competency in all areas of medical education. This network provides small-group mentoring for junior faculty, residents, and medical students. Sponsored activities include mentor dinners, a fall retreat with skills training and networking opportunities, cultural competence educational and outreach activities, recommendations for department activities (e.g., Grand Rounds speakers), and recruitment, retention and promotion efforts throughout the year.

This group meets quarterly, and their objectives include addressing issues pertaining to careers in psychiatry, balance of professional and personal demands, and leadership in academic and non-academic settings. Group mentorship and informal individual mentor relationships have resulted in scholarly contributions, career guidance and support. Liaisons with organized psychiatry organizations such as the Association of Women Psychiatrists and the American Psychiatric Association are underway. D.

In addition, during the annual review of faculty and appointment of new faculty, this Committee is working to identify potential mentor pairs. F.
