About this event

Join us for the latest MIHE and ARMS Seminar: "Troubled Waters: The Mental Health Impacts of Environmental Racism".

In her presentation Troubled Waters: The Mental Health Impacts of Environmental Racism, Dr. Ingrid Waldron traces the legacy of environmental racism in Indigenous and Black communities in Canada.

Using case studies on environmental racism in Nova Scotia, Ontario, and British Columbia, she explores the specific ways in which environmentally hazardous industry and projects have impacted the psychological well-being and mental health of impacted communities. Dr. Waldron also provides an overview of how she has been addressing environmental racism through collaborative, community-based, multi-method, multi-sectoral, and interdisciplinary approaches over the last 10 years. Her presentation concludes with a discussion on some of the “wins” Indigenous and Black communities impacted by environmental racism have experienced over the last several years.
