Racism and mental health

Saturday, September 11th, 18.00-19.30, ASZ

Input – Linke PoC

Based on their own experience and the current state of research, health care workers and affected people talk about the institutional and personal effects of racism on mental health: Refugees, migrant people and BIPOC have more difficult access to health care institutions, be it through linguistic, cultural, legal or financial barriers. At the same time, they are also exposed to greater stress and trauma from racism and colonialism. As affected people are thus exposed to multiple discrimination, they are at increased risk of being affected by abusive behavior.
