Systemic racism has a destructive and direct impact on mental health and identity development. This conversation will center learners, focusing on the importance of our role as educators and how what we teach affirms or invalidates identities of learners and people in our world. We will consider the impact on the past, immediate, and future mental health of our students, and explore how systemic racism undermines our own mental health and impacts our teaching practice.

We will be joined by: Dr. Dawn X. Henderson, Director of Research, Village of Wisdom, Co-Director of the Collective Health and Education Equity Research Collaborative and Marcy Melvin, LPC, Deputy Director The Hackett Center for Mental Health.
