Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour Recovery Pathways: Equity, Intersectionality, Inclusion
Panellists will discuss lived experience on the intersectionality, diversity and historical racism and prejudice encountered when accessing professional and peer-based recovery supports. BIPOC communities are historically less likely to have access to safe, quality healthcare for mental health and substance use-related traumas and challenges. All Canadians have shared responsibility to create a safe and respectful recovery-oriented environment for Black, Indigenous, and persons of colour.
It is important to foster foundational knowledge of the significance of Black, Indigenous and persons of colour experiences in seeking pathways to and of recovery.
The intent of this facilitated panel discussion is to instil hope, acknowledge the need to seek out, share and affirm the distinct histories of BIPOC recovery communities and unlearn dominant narratives of historical and contemporary roles in the cultural, social, political, legal, and economic life. The session’s goal is to shed light on the foundation of truth and knowledge required to effect real change.
