Challenges for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC)

To commemorate this special month dedicated to the unique mental health struggles of underrepresented groups. This discussion could not come at a more important time — as communities of color face the enormous challenges resulting from the COVID pandemic, the resulting economic decline and the ongoing fight for social justice around police brutality.

ICL is pleased to share resources and personal stories with the goal of enhancing understanding and sharing common experiences.
