The Role of Racial Justice in Mental Health Equity | November 16

In the season three finale of Racism: Dismantling the System, we explore inequities in mental healthcare in communities of color. In a recent article about the realities of the relationship between the mental health system in the United States and communities of color, Professors Ruth S. Shim, M.D., M.P.H. and Sarah Y. Vinson, M.D. break down the impact of structural racism and impacts of social injustice on access to resources, opportunities and basic protections for people of color in the United States. Join us as we host a conversation to better understand how we can achieve mental health equity.
