Supporting and Promoting Mental Health for Black Youth
Resources for Child and Youth Mental Health Core Service Providers
Hosted by East Metro Youth Services in collaboration with YouthREX
YouthREX creates and curates relevant and accessible evidence-based resources from research, practice, and lived experience, designed for youth workers and other Ontario youth sector stakeholders.
Below is a selection of resources available through our online Knowledge Hub that are relevant to working against anti-Black racism. We are mindful about citing each resource carefully, and providing links to authoring individuals, groups, and organizations. If you have suggestions for resources, please contact our Knowledge Exchange Manager, Kathe Rogers, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
