#BIMHRacialTrauma

Racial Trauma

Racial Trauma has been present for centuries, but it was not until the last few years that we have really begun to understand and teach racial trauma. Today BIMH leaders will continue to highlight the importance of understanding racial trauma, treating racial trauma, but more importantly healing and centering Black people and their trauma.

If your research focuses on racial trauma & Black mental health, tag us & use the hashtag #BIMHRacialTrauma to tell us about your research.
