black mental health day
It's time to confront the mental health effects of racism against Black Torontonians.
It’s overdue. After generations of anti-Black racism, it’s still a year-round problem for Black Torontonians. An annual day to confront its effects on mental health in Black communities is only a first step.
Monday March 2nd, 2020.
And the first Monday in March, every year after.
Featured and community-led events, designed to drive productive dialogue and acknowledgment of the need for systemic change.
All Torontonians can get involved— from neighbours to policymakers.
Spaces across Toronto. See below to learn more.
