In this upcoming portion of the Identity Dialogue Series, Janelle Jones, a Yale and Johns Hopkins educated Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner from Boynton, will be lead a discussion on mental health in marginalized and POC (people of color) communities. Issues such as the co-occurrence of other identities when it comes to mental health as well as stigmatization and lack of mental health awareness in communities will be discussed.
