Scientists agree there is one human-race, and that the concept of ‘race’ is a politically and socially motivated construct with no biological basis,  designed to maintain structural inequities and discrimination.  This impacts individuals and can lead to mental health problems, and worse.

Stephen Lawrence.  George Floyd.  Kalief Browder.  May they all rest in peace.  These individuals, and countless others have been murdered (direct and indirectly) because of inequalities and hate based violence.  Granted, these are the more extreme cases, but individuals who are considered to be ethnic minorities are at greater risk of poverty and homelessness due to socio-economic disadvantage and racism.  People face all kinds of discrimination, such as racial profiling, and lack of access to education, jobs, and housing, which impact life opportunities and prospects.  Whereas, for others, problems may arise within families who are themselves impacted by societies, for example, because of cultural clashes between the different generations in a family. Any of these alone can contribute to mental health problems, sometimes leading to  substance misuse, depression, anxiety, trauma, psychosis, and higher rates of suicide.  Worse still, even when ethnic ‘minority’ individuals access mental health services, they are often misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and simply do not receive an adequate level of care. All manner of issues might arise, and all require and deserve sensitive, thoughtful, nuanced, honest, and courageous care.
