Disparities in mental health for people of color remain pervasive and persist across generations. There is a growing consensus that structural and interpersonal racial discrimination fundamentally impacts mental health in communities of color. The persistent stress of experiencing discrimination has an impact across generations, and the degree to which the health consequences of racism and bigotry can be passed down from one generation to the next is an important avenue of exploration. This town hall will delve into this issue.
From their expert perspective, our distinguished panel discuss: In clinical settings, how does structural racism manifest itself in relation to communities of color particularly in children, adolescents, adults, older adults, and other populations ( i.e., LGBTQIA+)?
Presentations by the panelists will are followed by a recorded Q&A session with the audience, moderated by Dr. Michele Reid. Panelists include: Ebony Dix, M.D., Chuan-Mei Lee, M.D., and Peter Ureste, M.D.
