Everybody vs. Depression: Mental Health Among African-Americans

Tune in for this training focused on understanding mental health, particularly in the African-American community, led by Robert Sanders, MPH, Detroit Health Department.

According to Mental Health America, historical dehumanization, oppression, and violence against Black and African American people has evolved into present day racism - structural, institutional, and individual – and cultivates a uniquely mistrustful and less affluent community experience, including inadequate access to and delivery of care in the (behavioral) health system. Processing and dealing with layers of individual trauma on top of new mass traumas from COVID-19 (uncertainty, isolation, grief from financial or human losses), police brutality and its fetishization in news media, adds compounding layers of complexity for individuals to responsibly manage.

This training is being presented by 313 HOPE Detroit, the Detroit Recovery Project, and the Detroit Health Department.
