[Editor Note: On August 26, the Office of Mental Health broadcast the first in a six part webinar series on Racism as a Public Mental Health Crisis moderated by Matthew Canuteson, MA, Diversity & Inclusion Office, Director of the Bureau of Cultural Competence, NYS Office of Mental Health (OMH).]

The recording of the first webinar in the series is now available, and information about how to register for the rest of the series follows. Of particular interest is access to Project Implicit, a self-assessment tool to better understand our own level of implicit bias.

Take the Implicit Bias Test

During the webinar, viewers were invited to take a self-assessment called Project Implicit. The site provides a number of different categories for self-assessment. Race is one category and the self-assessment takes about 15 minutes to complete.

There are more webinars in this series. The next one will be broadcast on September 30. Learn More.
