Addressing anti-Black racism in mental health and addiction care

Renascent Foundation

Understanding and addressing anti-Black racism in all forms is an essential competency. However, in order for these efforts to be effective, there must be a foundational level of knowledge about what anti-Black racism is and the many factors that contribute to racialized outcomes.

Addressing anti-Black racism in mental health and addiction care is a one-hour, educational session that examines the mental health and well-being challenges faced by Black Canadians.

Participants will:

  • explore the cultural strengths and protective factors that can mitigate risks associated with both the social determinants of health (SDH) and systemic racism.
  • learn about the intersections of racial and culturally rooted stigma and the impact on help-seeking behaviors and recovery.
  • discuss the prevalence patterns associated with racism and racialized health outcomes.

This informative session will be led by Renascent Board Member and Ontario’s first Assistant Deputy Minister for the Anti-Racism Directorate, Professor Akwatu Khenti. This is a must-attend event for anyone who would like to gain practical tools and skills for addressing anti-Black racism that can be applied in any setting.
