The Impact of Social Inequalities on Black Mental Health – Webinar Series

Publication Date: Sep 09, 2021

The Central East MHTTC and the Black Psychiatrists of America are partnering once again for a new season of webinars exploring mental health in the Black community. Join us on September 16 at 12:00pm ET when we kick off our next health equity webinar series with “Use and Misuse of Psychological Testing in the Evaluation of Black Patients.” All presentations will occur on the third Thursday of each month (12:00 PM ET) through July 2022.


The series launched in February 2021 to examine how the COVID-19 pandemic, in combination with longstanding structural and systemic inequities rooted in racism and discrimination, has disproportionately affected Black Americans and other marginalized people of color. Behavioral health professionals shared knowledge about how conditions such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and attention deficit disorder impact these communities.


The new series is focused on current mental health issues facing the Black community in the HHS Central East Region.
