As proud Iranian-American author and mental health activist Melody Moezzi said, “Race is a mental health issue; mental health is a race issue. We need to stop treating them like they are two separate issues because they are not.”
Discussing race and mental health is not new for ASHA International. This discussion is a part of who we are at our core. There’s never been a more important time than right now to share that with the world.
The video clip below is from our 2019 Grit and Grace conference but it’s especially fitting in our current state. This year we chose to make our conference FREE because, as Melody explains, we can’t do this alone.
