How Culture and Race Can Impact Identifying and Treating Mental Health Conditions

2:15 pm ET / 11:15 am PT

How we talk (or avoid talking) about mental health is uniquely shaped by our racial/ethnic backgrounds and our cultural experiences. For some cultural groups, emotional distress and mental health concerns are often expressed through physical symptoms or spiritual experiences. This webinar is designed to increase awareness and explore critical aspects of mental wellness that are shaped by an individual’s cultural background. We will discuss racial disparities in mental health, barriers to treatment, and strategies that can help in identifying and treating symptoms across different cultural groups.

  • · How different cultural groups express mental health concerns
  • · Social and environmental factors that contribute to poor mental health outcomes for these cultural groups
