BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Part II

July 13, 2:00 pm EDT - 3:30 pm EDT

Join NCRC’s National Training Academy for a Live Webinar: BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Part II on July 13, 2 – 3:30 pm ET.

Recently a renewed focus has been given to the importance of becoming trauma-informed. Specifically, organizations and direct care staff are becoming aware that the impact of trauma is far-reaching and can impact every area of life. Without an understanding of how clients’ perceptions, decisions, and emotions are formed by traumatic experiences, practitioners can unintentionally do more harm than good in their work. Trauma includes those experiences in childhood, events and experiences in adulthood, as well as those directly tied to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This webinar will address the trauma faced by clients due to lack of resources, racial disparities in housing and poverty mindsets created by generational trauma. You will also gain clarity in your role and responsibilities when serving individuals with a history of trauma and understand the cultural and mindset shifts that are necessary to create a Trauma Informed Care organization.

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
