You may think accessing a therapist, psychologist, or support group is as simple as walking through a door. But mental health support access can be challenging for Black Canadians. Addressing mental health concerns requires an intentional understanding that much of our healthcare system is entrenched in white ideology that remains anti‐Black.

Join the Afro‐Caribbean Mentorship Program (ACMP) and the University of Manitoba Black Alliance (UMBA) for a panel and group discussion on the ways in which anti‐Black racism is a mental health concern. 

All are welcome to join either in ‑person or virtually through a livestreamed video. Following a panel discussion, space will be given for wider discussion and questions.
