The awareness of systemic racism and mental illness continues to be on the rise, especially in the black community. There is a unique interaction between these major issues in popular culture with the world events which have triggered responses via social media and by organisations such as Black Lives Matter.
As part of Black History Month, the Association of Black Psychiatrists and the Royal College of Psychiatrists are holding a series of webinars examining these issues, their impact on black communities and humanity as a whole. Join our discussion on popular culture, racism and mental health.
The Royal College of Psychiatrists is dedicated to fighting against race inequality for our patients, carers, members, staff and in wider society. The Association of Black Psychiatrists supports the professional development of black psychiatrists, through education, training, and mentoring and promoting innovation and excellence in the delivery of high quality care. It fosters engagement and discussion about difficult conversations on racism and racial trauma, and is also a medium for teaching and engaging with the younger generation.
