BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Part I
July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. This time serves as an opportunity to spotlight mental health issues specific to marginalized communities in the United States. A key factor impacting mental health is economic and racial inequality, an issue exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic
In the first webinar, we will discuss the disparities that underrepresented groups experience due to lack of access to financial and mental health services, the racial wealth divide that have been created by systems of inequity and the multifaceted approach that is necessary to create mental and financial wellness for BIPOC populations.
You Will Learn:
- Barriers faced by minorities in pursuing mental health care
- The impact of mental health on wealth and homeownership
- How to Identify systems and biases which contribute to poor mental health
- Strategies to assist your client in managing their mental health and remaining focused on their goals
