BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Part I

July 6, 2:00 pm EDT - 3:30 pm EDT

Join NCRC’s National Training Academy for a Live Webinar: BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Part I on July 6, 2 – 3:30 pm ET.

July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. This time serves as an opportunity to spotlight mental health issues specific to marginalized communities in the United States. A key factor impacting mental health is economic and racial inequality, an issue exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic

In the first webinar, we will discuss the disparities that underrepresented groups experience due to lack of access to financial and mental health services, the racial wealth divide that has been created by systems of inequity and the multifaceted approach that is necessary to create mental and financial wellness for BIPOC populations.

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.
