Reducing the Stigma of Mental Illness in Communities of Color – Jan 26

Posted by Episcopal Community Services on January 24, 2023

Addressing the stigma of mental illness is important at any time, but particularly so now. The collective trauma the nation and especially under-resourced communities of color experienced during the Covid-19 pandemic impacted mental health profoundly. Long periods of social isolation and economic uncertainty overwhelmed many adults – particularly those with existing mental health challenges.

This ECS forum session will:

  • Suggest ways to address and overcome the stigma of mental health in low-income communities of color
  • Help people understand how culturally competent mental health providers of color can effectively serve communities
  • Make clear how to access mental health resources and programs in West Philadelphia and across the Philadelphia region

Date and Time: January 26, 2023, 4:30PM – 5:30PM

Location: St. Barnabas Community Resource Center, 6006 W. Girard Avenue, Philadelphia, PA
