While there is growing interest in understanding how social factors drive poor health outcomes, identification of structural racism as a root cause of health inequities have largely been neglected. Based on our commitment to social justice and social change, the ACT Institute started their own process of education and transformation in the areas of systemic racism and anti oppression work. The ACT Institute will share their process and lessons learned in introducing discussions about anti-racist practices and policies associated with the practice of Assertive Community Treatment.
