The impacts of oppression and racial trauma have a deep impact on mental health. CONNECT Summit County is committed to addressing gaps in mental health resources for marginalized communities. As part of our mission, we will work to illuminate the inequality and lack of cultural competency in mental health treatment. We will actively engage in our own learning and advocate for a shift in disparity regarding access to competent mental health care for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) in our community. CONNECT Summit County stands in solidarity.
