On today’s episode, Rebecca Hubbard and Mark Davis are going to discuss how the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery have had profound traumatic effects on individuals and families, and especially people in the African American community. This is why Mental Health Association Oklahoma launched its free virtual support group via Zoom that is specifically for people dealing with this ongoing crisis in America. The Coping with Trauma from Racial Injustice support and open dialogue group will start at 7 p.m. June 15. More details are available at mhaok.org/supportgroups.
In addition, Mental Health Association Oklahoma encourages people to contact its free Mental Health Assistance Center at 918-585-1213 and 405-943-3700 for help and support. It is open Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. People may also send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org.
OK, so just a bit of background on our guests: Rebecca is the Director of Outreach, Prevention and Education for Mental Health Association Oklahoma. And Rebecca is joined by Mark Davis, who serves as the Chief Programs Officer for the Association.
