Youth Mental Health in the Era of a Pandemic

Detester Magazine & Bring Change to Mind

The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed billions of people into unprecedented situations, forcing them to adapt both abruptly and quickly. Racism has also accentuated the mental health crisis of many BIPOC. As a result, the mental health of individuals across the globe has been significantly impacted by COVID-19, yet it is an overlooked issue. Detester Magazine recognizes how stressful these circumstances must be for many, which is why they are hosting an international, open discussion on September 27th, 2020, at 7PM EST to discuss how COVID-19 and racism have impacted our mental health. Panelists will share mental health advice and answer your questions live. Join the discussion to learn about ways to address mental health stigma and support mental health during this difficult time!

This panel will feature Hannah Blum, mental health activist and author of The Truth About Broken; Dior Vargas, a queer Latina mental health activist and creator of the Mental Illness Photo Project; Jessica Orenstein, the Senior Manager of High School Programming at the JED Foundation; and Gia Kokotakis, a former team USA figure skater and mental health advocate, all of whom will be shedding light on a range of topics.

You will receive the link to the panel in the confirmation email and a reminder email before the panel starts.
