Description

Despite early research showing that COVID-19 is disproportionately affecting communities of color, it often feels like our mental and physical wellbeing is not a priority within the healthcare system. Due to historical trauma and ongoing discrimination and marginalization, we have long faced structural systems that have failed us. Now we find ourselves again navigating additional barriers during this pandemic and in our fight to address a broken criminal justice system. This workshop will create a safe space for participants to examine the impact of the current global pandemic and racial battle fatigue on our mental wellbeing and discuss ways to care for ourselves during this difficult time. 

Workshop Facilitator: Adjoa Osei, Psy.D.
