June 25, 2020 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
When: Thursday, June 25, 2020; 4:00-5:30 PM Eastern
(3:00 PM Central, 2:00 PM Mountain, 1:00 PM Pacific)
Racism and anti-Black attitudes have been existent in this country for hundreds of years despite the ongoing efforts of Black people and allies to raise awareness of the impact that racism has had on society. The trauma that Black people have faced in this country has not only had adverse effects on their physical health but also their mental health.
During this webinar, Dr. Christine Crawford will review the historical context of individually mediated and systemic racism towards Black people and discuss the mental implications of racism and trauma on Black people within the United States. After the presentation, NAMI’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Ken Duckworth, will moderate a Q&A session.
