Marginalized Mental Health Matters: What Experts Want You to Know

"Seven professionals from across the US sat down with Verywell Mind to share insights about how they are improving the mental health discourse to better address the needs of marginalized groups. Their therapeutic approaches are largely influenced by their lived experience surviving such oppression as white supremacy, anti-Blackness, sexism, ageism, ableism, poverty, homophobia, xenophobia, transphobia, etc. Here's what they had to say."

Many disability activists want to change this narrative but wonder why it’s taking so long. What does this failure say about us as a society?"
