Mental Health Awareness Month 2022

Let’s Chat: Anxiety & Depression

On January 20th 2022, the ACMP hosted its first Mental Health month event focused on discussing anxiety and depression in the Afro-Caribbean Black (ACB) community. This event discussed the challenges that ACB community members face when dealing with anxiety and depression.. The keynote address and discussion were led by Amie Archibald-Varley and Benslyne Avril: two professionals who specialize in mental health.

This event had a positive effect on the participants, and many of them showed interest in learning more about mental health and the influence of anxiety and depression on their experiences. It underlined the importance of creating spaces where people are able to ask questions and learn more about ways they can improve their lives.
