Call in to speak with the host
Most people acknowledge that mental health issues are not handled as seriously as other health issues. There are misunderstandings, victim blaming, and the inaccurate belief that someone living with mental illness can simply 'cheer up' or get through it. What most people don't know is the diverse ways in which social workers exist in the world of mental health. There is not only a myriad of ways that social workers practice, but also a requirement for diversity and cultural competence and an ever-present need for diversity among providers. Join us as we discuss these issues and their impact on the trans* community.
Tune in tonight as The Strong Stance talks with Julian Harris. Julian is a 2nd year MSW student at Howard University where he is concentrating on mental health and trauma, and he is currently interning at the Wendt Center for Loss and Healing. He formerly co-facilitated DCATS support groups and was a Team Leader for HIPS. Julian is a black trans-man, living in Washington, DC.
