Black History Month begins

CMHA Brant Haldimand Norfolk joins Canadians across the country to honour the legacy of Black Canadians, past and present, for Black History Month in February.

While Black History Month is a time to learn about the many important contributions of African, Caribbean, and Black Canadians to the settlement, growth and development of Canada, it’s important to note that members of these communities face ongoing challenges given their subjection to generational trauma through enslavement, oppression, colonialism, and segregation, much of which extends to the experience of mental health care inequity today. These experiences include racism, sexism, poor access to education, low employment rates, inadequate housing, and poverty, all of which are barriers to accessing mental health and addictions support.
