Description

For over 30 years, the Black Mental Health Alliance for Education and Consultation, Inc. has provided a trusted culturally competent forum on the topic of mental health and related issues. We are bridge builders. From the Psychiatrist to the Grassroots Community level worker, Politicians to Educators, we provide an unapologetically Black space for those who work with marginalized communities across the United States and the world. Provocative, engaging, and thought provoking. The Black Mental Health Alliance is prepared to provide a bi-monthly podcast opportunity for all who understand (or are ready to learn) that #blackmindsmattter, first. We go live Friday August 28, 2020 at 3pm EST!

This podcast will discuss how police brutality disproportionately affects Black people and people of color, the link between experiences of police brutality and the collateral mental health affects. In this episode, co-hosts Andrea Brown and Nia Jones discuss what we need to teach our sons and daughters (and ourselves) if we are stopped by the police, what to expect, and what we should do.
