Thank you very much for the question.
I think it could be better, but I am encouraged that both levels of government are starting to recognize the importance of mental health.
Where I have difficulty is that I don't think the mental health difficulties experienced by people who are undergoing the trauma of racism are clearly understood. Racism is bad for your health. It's bad for your health because people end up with hypertension, coronary vascular disease and tremendous mental health difficulties. The pressure of having to constantly maintain the facade of being okay in order to function within a society where the system—not the people, but the system—is built to be against people of colour is very wearying. Frantz Fanon refers to it as wearing a mask just to get through the day. I don't think that's clearly understood.
Yes, on the surface, there is co-operation, possibly not much as there should be, but people need to understand what the importance of racism is and what it does to the psyche and the physical well-being of the individual.
