Mental Health America of Greater Dallas understands that racism undermines mental health. We are committed to anti-racism in all that we do. This means that we pledge to work against individual racism, interpersonal racism, and institutional racism in all their forms.
But it’s not just a pledge; is it a call to action.
This series will be kicked-off with a half-day conference followed by a 6-month workshop series to bring awareness of racism and mental health.
Attendees will leave with an introduction of identifying racial trauma, understanding the social determinants of health, and putting practice to action!
Objectives for this series:
- To identify the connection between mental health and racial/ethnic equity.
- To understand definitions associated with inequities.
- To build skills enabling conversation and healing within the community.
- To provide tools for eliminating structural racism.
