Welcome to the 'Black Mental Health' edition of Educator Resources. In an effort "to confront the mental health effects of racism against Black Torontonians," the City of Toronto hosted Black Mental Health Day (March 1) and Black Mental Health Week (March 7-11). And, until the 4oo+ years of anti-Black racism ends, the need to confront its devastating effects will continue.

The links below include recommended resources to continue creating awareness and inspiring actions to ultimately end racism forever.

Educator Resources Developed by School Mental Health Ontario:

  1. Understanding Anti-Black Racism to Support the Mental Health and WellBeing of Black and Racialized Students
  2. Supporting Mentally Healthy Conversations About Anti-Black Racism with Students
  3. How to Foster and Maintain Supportive Spaces for Black Youth
