Mental health has been a prominent topic in mainstream media over the past year. However, mental health is less often presented and addressed from a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) perspective. This panel discussion will focus on the intersection of mental health in DEI. What does this look like and how can we address and advocate for mental health and wellbeing in our work and home environments?
