COVID-19 AND THE ESCALATING MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS AMONG BIPOC AND IMMIGRANTS

Description (Dublin Core)

The purpose of “COVID-19 and the Escalating Mental Health Crisis among BIPOC and
Immigrants” is to analyze the already existing socioeconomic conditions in BIPOC and
immigrant communities that perpetuate mental health stigma and are also causes for the rising
mental health crisis during the COVID-19 pandemic. The research project aims to investigate
generational trauma and its correlation to the pressurizing notion of the ‘essential worker,’ how
the silence of trauma creates stigma, and the lack of representation and affordable mental health
resources for low-income BIPOC and immigrants.
