Seeing the Past But Not Captured by It: The Need for Cultural Healing
This Summit will feature important presentations that change the perpetuated narratives around race and mental health to transform how the recognition, acknowledgement, and appreciation of cultural differences influences mental health care provision among people of African descent. Recognizing local knowledge and utilizing community-based assets make it possible to provide culturally-sensitive and appropriate mental health services that meet the demands of those who need cultural healing.
