Racist Psychiatric Diagnoses
In this episode we discuss the racist history of psychiatry and specific diagnoses used to silence and discredit African Americans fighting against racial injustices.
And we highlight the Kindred Southern Healing Justice Collective, a network of healers and medical practitioners working to intervene and transform generational trauma and violence in our communities and movements.
Visit the Kindred Collective website, http://kindredsouthernhjcollective.org/, to learn more about their important work, view their resources, and to donate.
