Waymaking Special Event to Discuss Impact of Racism on Mental Health
MCPS is hosting a Waymaking special virtual event entitled, A Courageous Conversation on the Impact of Racism on Mental Health.
The conversations will be held online in two parts—on Tuesday, June 30, and on Tuesday, July 7, from 6:30–8 p.m. The events will be hosted by Dr. Christina Conolly, director of psychological services for MCPS, and John Landesman, a coordinator in the Equity Initiatives Unit. Both events will feature a panel discussion, and question and answer session.
The June 30 event will examine the problems around access and barriers to receiving mental health. This will include a conversation on social justice and how to change mindsets and stigma around mental health.
The July 7 conversation will focus on how people can get help and support with mental health concerns, as well as discussing how to eliminate the stigma of getting mental health support.
