Second Annual

Black Mental Health

The effect of vicarious racism on Black mental health.

On May 11 (10-11:30am), please join us for the Second Annual Black Mental Health Roundtable in the nation’s capital to commemorate the anniversary of George Floyd’s death.

Presented by Hurdle in collaboration with the Kennedy-Satcher Center for Mental Health Equity, the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI) and the American Psychological Association (APA), this Roundtable serves as a defining moment in America’s journey the last two years toward mental health equity and parity.

Hosted by U.S. Representative Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick, Florida 20th Congressional District, the Roundtable will offer a safe, non-partisan space to go deeper in our understanding of racism’s impact on the mental health of Black Americans.

All registrants will receive a copy of the Roundtable’s preceding report: Voices of a Collective Experience: Vicarious Racism and Its Effects on Black Mental Health.

This is an in-person event that will also be available as a live stream. To watch the live stream click on the "Sign up for the event button" and follow the instructions on the Event Brite's "About this event" section.

"Systemic racism is the most fundamental social determinant of Black mental health."
Kevin Dedner

"Two years after the death of George Floyd, it has become clear that individuals do not have to experience racism directly in order for it to affect them. The report and roundtable discussion is based on interviews with people of color who share their first-hand experiences with direct and indirect (vicarious) racism."

We hope you can join us for what promises to be a compelling event."

-Kevin Dedner, CEO & Founder of Hurdle
