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 closing workshop, What Makes a ‘Good Life?’ Perspectives from Black Youth in Ontario, was presented by YouthREX’s Rahma Siad-Togane and Kamau Davis-Locke, who shared preliminary findings from our Ontario Youth Sector Compass on how Black youth understand a ‘good life’ and how mental health pervades many aspects of their daily lives, as well as their self-worth, relationships, and networks.
