Identifying as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) is a reason to celebrate, be proud, and to take ownership of a diverse and culturally rich identity.

It means different things to different people and allows for true self-exploration and individual meaning. But, it also comes with unique challenges that most people who don’t identify as BIPOC may never experience.

With a long history of marginalization, oppression, and racism, BIPOC individuals can experience violence, stress, trauma, and discrimination in everyday life. Whether it’s one event or generations of trauma, BIPOC individuals face unique and negative impacts on their mental and emotional well-being.

Understanding Race-Based Stress

When it relates to mental health, terms such as “trauma informed care” are now part of the lexicon in supporting youth and vulnerable populations. Various types of trauma can affect everyone differently and can have profound negative emotional, mental, and physical effects on the brain and body.
