In Summer 2020, Everwell—and many members of our predominantly white, privileged CIRCLE—committed to the lifelong soul work to become better humans to the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities. This summer, in 2021, our Humanity Well is all about continuing to read, learn, listen, grow, cry, unfold, examine from the inside out, challenge ourselves, and commit to the work. We will highlight "Events We Love" that are happening around us, especially those hosted by our sisters at Black Women’s Blueprint and through their Restore Forward initiative.
We are thrilled to feature an EVENT WE LOVE: Racial Healing as Mental Healthcare. We hope you consider registering for this event, which is hosted by Black Women's Blueprint.
Racial healing as Mental Healthcare recognizes the need to acknowledge and tell the truth about past wrongs created by individual and systemic racism and address the present consequences. It is a process and tool that can facilitate trust and build authentic relationships that bridge divides created by real and perceived differences. Racial Healing as Mental Healthcare creates a pathway for healing justice that is rooted in uncovering history (truth-telling), making connections across racial lines, working together to heal, and taking action for justice that restores. Racial Healing as Mental Healthcare is designed to develop the capacity of participants to better understand racism in its institutional and structural forms. We will move away from a focus on personal bigotry and bias, We will presents a historical, cultural, and structural analysis of racism with shared language and a clearer understanding of how institutions and systems are producing unjust and inequitable outcomes. Participants should leave the training better equipped to begin to work for change.
