Resilient Communities: A conversation on mental wellness in BIPoC communities

Mental illness is a significant public health crisis that disproportionately impacts BIPoC communities due to structural racism. As part of the CHBC Mental Health System and Policy Work, we are creating a series of roundtable discussions with community members, professionals, and researchers to unpack the causes of mental health issues rooted in structural racism that the COVID-19 pandemic has intensified. Through these discussions, we have an opportunity to learn from one another and collectively pave the way to holistic healing.

Join us and a panel of community members on February 25th, 2021, as we engage in a conversation on mental wellness in BIPoC communities. This event is open to everyone, so please share with your networks and consider attending.

Date: February 25th, 2021

Time: 6:00 – 7:30 PM PST
