Black Children and Mental Health
In this webinar, The Cradle’s Our Children initiative brings together a panel of therapists and parents to discuss the stigma that exists around mental health and why the rate of Black families seeking mental health care and treatment is much lower than White families. They talk about why mental health services should be designed with cultural and social nuances in mind as well as the upward trend in mental health needs as Covid-19 has interrupted the lives of so many kids and limited their social activities.
