Understanding the Roots of Racism – Mental Health

Date and Time:February 24th - 5:00pm-6:15pm


This is a virtual event.


Despite immense need, only one in three Black Americans who need mental health care receive it. Data shows Black patients are less likely to receive guideline-consistent care, are less frequently included in medical research, and are more likely to receive care in an emergency room than with a licensed mental health specialist.
Lack of access to care, stigma and social pressures associated with mental health, and the economic and educational inequities facing Black Americans all play a role in the complicated intersection of race and mental health.
Join our panel to learn more about the history of racism in mental health care and discuss ways to better support the well-being, resiliency and whole health of every individual and family in Central Indiana.
Panelists to be announced soon.
