HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS VIDEO:

Beyond Invisible: Black Youth Mental Health was a Youth Work Teach-In for the Ontario youth sector on pedagogies, perspectives, and practices on Black youth mental health, presented in collaboration with Donna Richards, Hellen Gateri, and the York Research Chair in Youth and Contexts of Inequity on October 6, 2022.

This online Teach-In included a keynote presentation, engaging workshops, and conversations that explored how race shapes the mental health experiences of Black youth, and the importance of an anti-Black racism framework in transforming oppressive practices and policies.

This opening keynote, Unashamed yet Unsupported, was provided by Mercy Shibemba, an award-winning youth activist from the UK who uses her story of growing up with HIV to educate, challenge stigma, and inspire.

Please also watch our closing workshop, What Makes a ‘Good Life’? Perspectives from Black Youth in Ontario.
