Convenience and flexibility may continue to make teletherapy an attractive option for both patients and clinicians long after #COVID19. As our CEO @ArthurCEvans notes, research also shows it can be as effective as face-to-face therapy. https://t.co/FOcK333WJ6

Quoted @MentalHealthAm

Q8: Why is an observance like #BIPOCMentalHealthMonth important? #b4stage4chat

A8: While mental health conditions don't discriminate, our mental health systems do. BIPOC face unique stressors due to their experiences, identity, and history that cannot be ignored. There are also treatment and access issues that disproportionately affect BIPOC. #b4stage4chat https://t.co/MDDUEOlKZJ

A8: People from diverse groups often experience oppression and discrimination which puts them at a higher risk of mental health concerns. We need to address these issues! #b4stage4chat @MentalHealthAm

Racism it's our longest, most expensive, most deadly public health issue. We need to have racism declared a punblic health crisis and make intentional plans of action to address it. COVID-19 has shown us that we can't waste any more time w/ inaction. #b4stage4chat https://t.co/msdFes9SFp

A7: People with multiple marginalized identities are more likely to experience discrimination, rejection, threats, and violence. These experiences are are compounded and can lead to negative mental health outcomes. #b4stage4chat

A5: Research shows that the effects of trauma can be passed on to children due to how trauma impacts brain development and chemistry. #b4stage4chat @MentalHealthAm

Quoted @MentalHealthAm

A5: Not only does trauma affect DNA, but the way that parents experienced trauma can affect the way they raise their children. #b4stage4chat

So true! https://t.co/JiuzMPFIUZ

Quoted @MentalHealthAm

Q4: What are unique some ways that people who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color experience trauma? #b4stage4chat

A4: Children growing up with toxic stress may have difficulty forming healthy relationships and are at higher risk of mental health problems. #b4stage4chat @MentalHealthAm https://t.co/MH9hIhHrTJ

Quoted @MentalHealthAm

Q3: Trauma-informed care is a hot topic in the mental health field. Why is it important to address mental health with both an intersectional lens and with trauma-informed care? #b4stage4chat

A3: Studies have shown that trauma is a near-universal experience among those who seek out mental health care -- trauma-informed care is essential to meeting the mental health needs of young adults #b4stage4chat https://t.co/LEN82nNP2W

Quoted @DrEarlTurner

A2: Different types of trauma include abuse, neglect, and witnessing violence. #b4stage4chat @MentalHealthAm

So true! For many disable people these types of trauma are the realities of our daily lives. #b4stage4chat #DisabilityRightsAreHumanRights https://t.co/TmzrSnAJGW

A2: Here are 3 types of trauma: 1.- Acute trauma results from a single incident 2.- Chronic trauma is repeated & prolonged such as domestic violence or abuse 3.- Complex trauma is exposure to varied & multiple traumatic events, often invasive, interpersonal nature #b4stage4chat

For example, viewing videos of brutal police killings of Black people, such as the video associated with the murder of George Floyd, can cause traumatic stress reactions in the people who view them - especially in Black people. #b4stage4chat

A2: Youth and families who live with community violence often have heightened fears and anxiety about potential harm. @MentalHealthAm #b4stage4chat

Quoted @MentalHealthAm

Q2: How would you describe trauma? How does it happen? What effects does it have on someone? #b4stage4chat

“Trauma is the response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event that overwhelms an individual’s ability to cope, causes feelings of helplessness, diminishes their sense of self and their ability to feel the full range of emotions and experiences.” #b4Stage4Chat https://t.co/yKyJjmlp4X

Quoted @MentalHealthAm

Q2: How would you describe trauma? How does it happen? What effects does it have on someone? #b4stage4chat

A2: Trauma is a deeply distressing or disturbing experience, and those who identify as BIPOC - especially queer and trans people - can often recount tales of actions, words, and events that have made a deep impact on the way they live, speak, and think. #b4stage4chat https://t.co/17aHVRimc7
