There are copious resources available to better understand racism and the impact on mental health and health outcomes of black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC). This page is not an endorsement for any of these resources, nor does it mean other resources that didn’t make the list couldn’t be extremely valuable. We are simply offering some resources for you to explore.
