Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board

Join us for the first in a series of community discussions (via a webinar) about mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health within the Black community. Register for this FREE event at bit.ly/spacetodigdeep.

We will dig deeper into conversations that address the conditions of COVID-19, inequity, racism, trauma, stigma, and other factors that significantly impact the well-being of our Black community. We will also discuss what we can do, individually and collectively, to bring about meaningful and long overdue change to improve outcomes in the lives of our Black community.

This session will provide a historical and contemporary overview of how racial trauma and stigma impact the mental health and wellness of the Black community. All are invited to attend.

Our partners for this event include National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. and Fairfax County Public Schools. In Fairfax County Government the agencies include Fairfax County Health Department, Fairfax County Department of Family Services and Fairfax County Neighborhood and Community Services.
