Addressing Health Disparities: Clinical Insights on Race and Social Justice

In the context of the increased attention in the lay and medical press to structural racism in the aftermath of the recent high-profile deaths of African-Americans at the hands of the criminal justice system, this web series will examine the intersections of race and ethnicity, racism, sexual orientation, social justice and health to better understand the myriad ways these important factors lead to health care disparities in our communities.

Wednesday, December 14, 2022,  1-2 PM ET

In this session, a group of national experts on mental health will talk about the current state of mental health in the United States. The panelists will discuss how the mental health system addresses the rise in the number of people who need mental health services. These speakers will highlight how providers are helping people and communities deal with social stressors like our long-lasting pandemic (COVID-19) and the problems and manifestations of systemic racism, both now and in the past.
