Lowering Barriers: Race, Income & Mental Health

May 20 @ 5:00 pm

Power shapes our wellbeing. Race and income can have a much greater impact on our health than medicine or doctors. For young people, that means the systems and environments that surround them affect how they will view and access mental health support systems. With inequitable and discriminatory structures in place, finding ways to destigmatize mental health and create pathways for access can be difficult to navigate. Join PBS SoCal and KCET as we explore how we can lower these barriers on an individual, community and structural level. The panels will feature Dr. Manuel Pastor (Distinguished Professor, Sociology and American Studies & Ethnicity at USC; Director, USC Equity Research Institute), Roshawn Davis (student and intermediate typist clerk), Katherine Yeom (Executive Director, Korean American Family Services) and Jorge Partida del Toro, Psy.D. (Chief of Psychology, Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health). Hosted by: Cara Santa Maria (SOCAL UPDATE Host and Creator/Host of podcast “Talk Nerdy”) as well as 21-year-old student journalist Andre Tinoco (alum of PBS NEWSHOUR’s Student Reporting Labs program and student journalist with “Sac on Scene”).
