PANEL: The Intersection of Race and Mental Health

Join us for a candid conversation about how racial identity can impact the mental health of individuals in the workplace and beyond. Sit down with panelists from diverse lived experiences and first-hand accounts navigating mental health in varying cultural settings and professional spaces including academic, non-profit, financial, rural and urban. Together, we will explore why it’s important to view mental health from an intersectional perspective, how to be a better mental health ally to racialized people, and the unique journeys each of our panelist continue to navigate as mental health champions.
