Black and African Americans face the unique struggles of ancestral trauma, institutionalized racism, violence, and mass trauma from the pandemic, along with racial and cultural insensitivity within the medical community. Stigma remains one of the greatest barriers to treatment. This presentation speaks specifically to the unique challenges and experiences of Black and African American individuals who live with mental health conditions. In this presentation, learn about contributing factors, generational trauma, coping strategies, local resources and supports, and how volunteer speakers (peers) manage their conditions. There will be a dedicated time for questions at the end.
