Black Mental Health Week
March 7 @ 8:00 am - March 11 @ 5:00 pm EST
In 2020, the City of Toronto, in partnership with TAIBU Community Health Centre, hosted the first Black Mental Health Day. It is now observed annual on the first Monday of every March.
But what started as a single day has already grown into a week. Black Mental Health Week is an initiative to highlight, support and improve the mental health of the Black community.
This year, Black Mental Health Week is recognized from March 7 to 11.
Here’s some of the work that we are doing to support the mental wellness of Black people in Canada:
- Shining A Light on Mental Health in Black Communities, a fact sheet that brings together statistics, information about the barriers to care that this community faces, and tips for how to better support them.
- Amplifying Black Experiences in Cannabis and Mental Health Research: Virtual Dialogue Series, a summary report that focuses specifically on the experience and perspectives of Black communities. (If you’re in a hurry, you can skip to the key takeaways).
- Cannabis & Mental Health Research Projects, which include 2 projects focused on Black communities.
