In this episode of Population Healthy Season 3: Race, Inequity, and Closing the Health Gap, we take a deeper look at how Black families and individuals deal with the factors that impact their mental health. Mental health is a complicated and nuanced subject, and racial trauma and stigmas add additional layers of complexity for communities of color. This creates a landscape that is difficult for Black adults and children to navigate.

While an individual’s geographic environment plays a key role in shaping who they are, media, cultural concepts of masculinity and sexual orientation, and access to mental health resources can also affect a person’s ability to deal with stressors. Our experts will discuss these intersections of mental health and identity, as well as potential ways of exploring them.
