Dr. Vivian Jackson | Decolonizing Mental Health

Having diverse practitioners is an advantage but Dr. Vivian Jackson believes that it doesn't solve the various levels of disparity within mental healthcare. She believes, for services to work, they have to be placed in spaces where they’re received well. Her formulation of 6 As asks questions that provide a holistic approach to tackling the multi-pronged inequity of mental health services.

DECOLONIZING MENTAL HEALTH examines the obstacles that systemic inequality imparts on the mental health industry, preventing BIPOC and other marginalized communities from receiving appropriate treatment. All episodes will be streaming online, on YouTube, on PBS Mysteries of Mental Illness and the PBS app.
