Task Force on Racism and Mental Health

Pervasive inequities in society favor members of dominant groups at the expense of minorities, people with diverse gender or sexual orientations, languages, or religions. Such exclusion and persecution have a huge impact on mental health, in particular for affective and psychotic disorders as well as substance use disorders. The objectives of this task force focus on tackling racism and racial discrimination in psychiatry through open discussion and taking the necessary action to address its numerous angles.
