HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS VIDEO:

This video, featuring Wanasah Executive Director and Co-Founder Namarig Ahmed, explores Black Youth Mental Health and Wellbeing.

How might we develop practices, programs, and policies that merge mental health literacy with an intersectional and healing-centered approach specific to Black youth?

Black Youth Mental Health and Wellbeing is one of the four themes featured in YouthREX’s Call-In-Cards for Anti-Black Racism Action.

The Call-In-Cards centre critical self-reflexivity as the source and impetus to connect understandings of anti-Black racism to anti-Black racism action – at the individual, program, and community levels. The Call-In-Cards are four decks of 16 cards across four themes. Each of the 16 cards features a scenario on one side and four prompts on the other to guide critical self-reflexivity and encourage critical conversations that lead to action.

Learn more about the Call-In-Cards and The Kit for Centering Black Youth Wellbeing, an online hub that supports anti-Black racism learning + action + community engagement in Ontario’s youth sector.
