Advancing Mental Health Equity in K-12 and Higher Education: How Can Research Support Anti-Racism Efforts?
The Healthy Minds Network hosted a Fall Mental Health Research Symposium entitled, Advancing Mental Health Equity in K-12 and Higher Education: How Can Research Support Anti-Racism Efforts?. This year’s symposium brought together approximately 80 people—including researchers, clinicians, campus practitioners, entrepreneurs, advocates, students, and others—to discuss anti-racism efforts as they relate to student mental health. The event focused on how individuals and organizations can advance mental health equity and research with an anti-racism lens.
The presentations presented by the Healthy Minds Network, the Steve Fund, and EVERFI discussed the disparities that exist in K-12 and postsecondary settings. Additionally, the discussion sessions uncovered important ideas and issues that can and should be addressed through research and practice.
