Resilience Week: Dismantling Structural Racism in Medicine: What is the Physician’s Role?
Injustice is the main driver of mental health inequities and poor mental health outcomes, and yet few understand the outsized role that social injustice plays in the identification, diagnosis, and management of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. This presentation will examine key concepts associated with social injustice, provide clear examples of how social injustice manifests in our mental health care system, and discuss strategies for achieving social justice and mental health equity in our communities and institutions.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Define social justice, the social determinants of mental health, and mental health inequities;
- Discuss the relationship between social injustice, health inequities, and physician wellbeing;
- Identify solutions to achieving social justice in mental health and how that can influence professional wellbeing and purpose.
