Cross-Cultural Emerging Lecture Series 2020

The last few months have been difficult for all of us- maybe more so because of the emotional toll of the pandemic. As psychiatrists, we have seen that many of the underserved population and communities of color have had persistently poor outcomes from the spread of COVID-19. With the recent killing of George Floyd following the deaths of other African Americans, mental health issues continue to rise along with economic uncertainty. It is important to address and acknowledge that exposure to these pervasive racial traumas and stressors are detrimental to one’s mental health.

We have created an education series with experts in cultural psychiatry to help us recognize challenges of addressing ethnic diversity in psychiatric services. We, as psychiatrists, have a voice and an opportunity to serve our communities. We can lead in dismantling racism and social injustice, promote diversity and educate our peers, our community and ourselves.
