Giving Compass’ Take:
• This webinar is a conversation between Erasma Monticciolo, Executive Director of Power of Two, and psychiatrist and associate professor at UC Davis, Ruth Shim. They discuss mental health inequities of marginalized communities during COVID-19.
• Access to mental health service and interruptions to health can be significant barriers for marginalized communities. How can donors help expand access?
• Learn about racial disparities in mental health treatment among young people.
As COVID-19 has illuminated the pre-existing disparities in health care, it has also shown us the mental health inequities that face disadvantaged populations. Black, Latinx, and Indigenous communities face higher rates of COVID-19 which is a result of the existing health inequities they are faced with. These communities are now faced with additional mental stress that the pandemic brings.
