The Garry Hurvitz Centre for Community Mental Health at SickKids is participating in the development of a multi-year strategy to address anti-Black racism in the infant, child and youth mental health sector.
The Honouring Our Promise: Ending Anti-Black Racism (HOPE) project is working to ensure that the sector honours its promise to end anti-Black racism and provide culturally responsive programs and services which help Black infants, children, and youth thrive.
The Centre is one of many agencies in Toronto participating in the HOPE project. We are looking for Black families to share their experiences with mental health services by participating in a survey or a group discussion.
Here is a list of upcoming group discussion:
- Black parents/caregivers and community members – Tuesday, Jan. 11, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
- Young Black parents – Wednesday, Jan. 12, 6 to 8 p.m.
- Black youth – Tuesday, Jan. 18, 6 to 8 p.m.
You can take a survey or sign up for a group discussion on the project website.
Thank you for being willing to share your perspectives and experiences to help improve mental health care for Black infants, children and youth.
