Ubuntu: Exploring the Black Community as an Inherited System of Peer Support
March 1, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
The South African concept Ubuntu means “I am because We are.” This concept speaks about the inherited interconnected thread that binds the Black community together. It is often-unrecognized natural Peer Support that goes unnoticed and uncompensated. Join Mental Health American (MHA) as we discuss peer support from a critical lens that centers the agency and inherited value of the Black community.
Join this free, 60-minute webinar where you will learn how to:
- Critically examine peer support and its role in Black communities
- Understand how traditional African and African American values are inherited in peer support
- Understand how agencies embedded in Black communities can center peer support for this population
