3rd Annual African American Mental Health Awareness Symposium
When and where
About this event
HOPEFUL Inc was established in the summer of 2006 for charitable purposes and designed to provide vital services to underserved and distressed communities in Sacramento. HOPEFUL Inc’s founder, having worked with other non-profits, felt there was a need for a program that specifically dealt with the underserved African American community.
HOPEFUL Inc’s founder saw the need in these communities and wanted to design a non-profit and programs to satisfy the needs of these marginalized communities. These programs range from homelessness, addressing mental health disparities in the African American community and kid coding for children who would otherwise not be exposed to it. HOPEFUL Inc’s goal is to reverse the effects of the conditions that plague communities that have historically been underserved.
Hopeful Inc.’s goal is to better educate all African Americans regarding mental health care awareness as it pertains to stigmas, ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences),trauma, toxic stress, early detection, Psychological Fortitude, early warning signs, cultural relevance and Psychological Liberation & wellbeing.
This symposium a meeting to discuss the African American mental health care crisis. We want to openly, honestly and in a safe space explore the historical & current oppression of African Americans in the mental health sector; as well as, the cultural biases in this community that continues to avoid addressing the reality & depth of its psychological trauma.
