We at the William James College INTERFACE Referral Service are keenly aware of the shortage of mental health providers of color and how racial inequities exist in medical and mental health care. The College’s Black Mental Health Academy, Center for Multicultural and Global Mental Health, and other programs and academic offerings are playing a critical role in reversing this trend. We invite you to read a statement from our Black Mental Health Graduate Academy Scholars, and to stand with us as allies to drive change and address systemic racism.

Anti-Racism

Over the last few months, protests have amplified the importance and urgency of addressing systemic racism, from the personal level to the largest systems operating in the United States.  William James INTERFACE Referral Service is working hard to gather resources to assist us in our own work as a program.  We also want to ensure that we are making this information available to mental health professionals, individuals, families and anyone interested in learning more about anti-racism.  Please find a variety of resources to help you, your family, your clients or the system you work within to learn more about what it means to be anti-racist, how to identify and address white privilege and it's impact on Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC), and how to become a more effective ally.
