Theme of Summit: The Necessity of Resilience: Living with the Mental Health Consequences of Systemic Racism and COVID - 19.

Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know – Pema Chodron

While people around the world are striving so hard to stay safe amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, there is the COVID-19 crisis that is taking its toll on African Immigrants and Refugees and too few are taking cognizance of their mental health well-being. It is of a fact that the impact of COVID-19 on African Immigrants and Refugee’s mental health is experienced differently. Research has shown that building resiliency is important in overcoming the short- and long-term impact of trauma. The 6th African Mental Health Virtual Summit will feature important presentations that would bridge the gaps between challenges and solutions, provide tools and skills to inform true and collective action needed to build resiliency as well as transform how the recognition, acknowledgment, and appreciation of cultural differences influence resilience building among People of African Descent.
