Live webinar July 8, 2021
9 a.m. to noon, EST

Janelle Campbell, MSW, RSW

Black mental health challenges are on the rise and we need to be committed to acknowledging and challenging racial disparities in mental health organizations. Clinicians will be able to unpack anti-Black racism and understand the lived experiences of the Black diaspora, understand systemic barriers and oppression (white supremacy), identify and challenge their own biases and stereotypes, and communicate with Black clients in order to build trust.
