At The Garry Hurvitz Centre for Community Mental Health at SickKids we are working to create spaces in which each individual feels valued and respected. We know that a space cannot be safe for everyone, given the systems of power and privilege that exist within our society which leads to the marginalization of specific individuals and communities. We want to acknowledge this while continuing to work to make spaces safer for our staff, clients and community members.
To support this goal, the Anti-Black Racism, Anti-Oppression and Health Equity Advisory Committee at GH-CCMH has developed the statement below, with client and staff feedback, to promote the kind of space we are trying to create.
You will see this statement up in our lobbies as well.
If you have any comments/feedback about our safer spaces statement, reach us at email@example.com.
