Building resilience in your family's health is a collaborative effort and in a holistic way. Our team explored the risks to family's wellness such as:

  • Health risks
  • Mental health concerns
  • Anti-Black racism
  • Systemic oppression
  • School difficulties

Black people are highly susceptible to physical ailments such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and immune difficulties. This can impact financial and employment stability within the household, as well as contribute to heightened concerns around wellness. Workshop leader Shelly Laforest, discusses how we can manage our physical wellness and maintain a healthy family.
