Racial inequity has become central in the national conversation about physical and mental health care since the Covid-19 pandemic. We know that behavioral and mental health care can be impacted by one’s physical health. Historically marginalized groups that have been denied equitable access to healthcare also experience disproportionate risk of living with untreated behavioral and mental health condition. The constant exposure to the reality of health disparities across racial groups amplifies the need to make what has been invisible, visible. This workshop examines racial differences with the goal of promoting access to equitable care.
