July is BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Month. At a moment of urgent racial reckoning, this program will explore the significance of Black mental health and ask what role it plays in the movement for Black lives. How have ideas about Black mental health and illness intersected with enduring associations between Blackness and criminality? What impact has the culture of incarceration had on the experiences of Black individuals with mental illness? How might Oregon’s specific history of racial oppression and its tiny Black population contribute to the mental health challenges facing Black Oregonians right now?
