Black Mental Health Day
On Monday, March 1, the Toronto District School Board recognized Black Mental Health Day. Held on the first Monday of March, Black Mental Health Day acknowledges the deeply rooted impact anti-Black racism has on the emotional well-being of Black communities.
Everyday, we need to recognize the important role that schools play in discussing how racial trauma impacts the mental health and well-being of our Black students and families. It is through this that we can acknowledge and support meaningful and accessible connections to resources.
Please refer to this document for access to resources available that can help with discussion opportunities in the classroom, our schools and our communities. For more information, please visit the web story on Black Mental Health Day.
