Event description
Attend our stakeholder event to understand more about improving access to and uptake of mental health services for Black youth in Edmonton!

About this Event

For the past year, Dr. Bukola Salami in collaboration with the Africa Centre, has conducted research regarding the access and uptake of mental health services in African, Black and Caribbean youth communities within Edmonton.

Research was gathered through a series of individual interviews, as well as four large-scale youth-focused conversation cafes held throughout the year. What makes this project even more impactful, is that this study was mainly designed and implemented by members of Africa Centre's youth collective, YEG The Come Up.

The purpose of this engagement event, is to present the major research findings of the study, to key stakeholders. Moreover, the intent is to share actionable solutions gleaned from this research, in hopes of bettering the mental health of the African, Caribbean and Black youth communities.

The evening will feaure:

  • Catered dinner
  • Facilitated presentations
  • Interactive activities
  • Networking opportunities

Our presentations will feature topics such as:

  • Developing culturally competent programming
  • Looking at mental health services from a racialized lens
  • Developing equitable frameworks for mental health services
  • Gaps to access and uptake of mental health services among racialized communities

This event is open to all stakeholders and interested community members. There is no cost to this event, but registration is preferred as there is limited seating.
