Supporting the mental health needs of racialized young people

Live webinar: May 2, 2022 | 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST
Facilitator: Amy Gajaria, MD, FRCPC

This webinar will give guidance on providing culturally competent mental health care for diverse young people and their families. Explore various ways that young people may have felt unheard or uncomfortable in mental health settings due to their racial/ethnic identity. The facilitator will present approaches that practitioners can use to help decrease barriers to care for such young people and their families.

This training will look at experiences young people and their families have of oppression, racism, and structural oppressions. The goal is to help all participants have greater comfort in dealing with these issues. However, participants should come willing to acknowledge the role these factors play in young people’s lives.

Participants will gain a greater understanding of the barriers to mental health care faced by racialized young people. They will acquire strategies to engage racialized young people and their families. Identify specific struggles that racialized and underserved children and youth may face and how these might affect their mental health.

Enjoy this special Mental Health Week webinar presentation with an automatic 50 percent savings.
