Structural racism is omnipresent and has led to unjust policies and practices resulting in a societal dichotomy where a small number of people have unfair advantages, while a growing number of people are denied those rights and liberties. This continuous structural racism has significant impacts on mental health and well-being. Dr. Ruth Shim will join us in the next Population Mental Health forum to discuss structural racism and its impact on mental health and to review topics in her new book, “Social (In)Justice and Mental Health.” This event is appropriate for students, academics and the general community, but has particular relevance for clinicians working in the field of mental health who are uniquely poised to address these inequalities in their daily work. The event will conclude with a Q&A session with attendees.
