COVID-19, Grief and the Black Widowed Woman Zoom event (To be recorded)
Time & Location
About the Event
As National Minority Mental Health Awareness month winds down, we would like to close it out with a special online event about COVID-10. You asked and we listened. If you have a few moments Friday evening, join us for this live discussion. Can't make it? No worries! The event will be recorded!
We realize that so much information has been communicated to the public about this deadly virus but we thought that you would want to be aware of these statistics about the effects COVID-19 has on minorities:
* Nationally, African-American deaths from COVID-19 are nearly two times greater than would be expected based on their share of the population. In four states, the rate is three or more times greater.
* In 42 states plus Washington D.C., Hispanics/Latinos make up a greater share of confirmed cases than their share of the population. In eight states, it's more than four times greater.
* White deaths from COVID-19 are lower than their share of the population in 37 states and the District of Columbia.
On Friday, July 31, Black Women Widows Empowered, and Psychotherapist, Dr. Sarah Williams will hold a conversation with widows in our private online Facebook group. A discussion will be held specifically about the effects of COVID-19 as it relates to the Black woman widow and we will chat about how they’re coping as well as touching on their mental health status.
We have several women in the group whose husbands have been directly affected (as well as family members) and we would like to provide an outlet for this needed discussion!
This event will be held in our private Facebook group. Not a member? Check out the link to join to participate in this discussion.
