Webinar Series Continues Focus on Black Mental Health
The Central East MHTTC, in partnership with the Black Psychiatrists of America (BPA), is launching a new season of webinars examining mental health in the Black community. The 2022-23 season of the Health Equity Webinar Series begins on October 27 at 12:00pm ET with ADHD in the Black Community: Unmet Needs from Childhood through Adulthood (Learn more and Register).
The series debuted in February 2021 to raise awareness about how the COVID-19 pandemic, in conjunction with longstanding structural and systemic inequities, has disproportionately affected the mental health of Black, Indigenous, People of color.
Each interactive 60-minute presentation will feature behavioral health experts discussing a wide range of topics, including diabetes and depression comorbidity, mental health during the holidays, psychotic disorder management, and the connection between migraines and mental health.
The BPA’s mission is to address issues affecting the mental health of African people worldwide, with special emphasis on people of African descent in the Americas, and to provide a forum for continuing educations for those who provide psychiatric care to these underserved population groups.
We invite the behavioral health workforce in Central East Region 3 to consider incorporating information shared in these presentations into their clinical practice.
Join us on select Thursdays at 12:00 PM ET (11:00 AM CT / 10:00 AM MT / 9:00 AM PT) through September 2023 to attend these sessions.
