Message to our commun ity

RACISM IS A MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS

Humanidad Therapy & Education Services has an unwavering commitment to equity; therefore we want to publicly denounce our outrage for the horrific racist attacks to the Asian Pacific Islander community. It is obvious that RACISM IS A MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS that affects not only the target of hatred but the whole community, including the perpetrators. Hate needs to be seen as a mental condition that does not allow a person to see the humanity of others and much less see others as equals.

It is important that communities understand that raising children is much more than supporting their basic needs. It also requires that we teach them to see, respect and treasure others. We need to teach then that actions have consequences and have ripple effects. We need to teach them values, ideals that foster a healthy and thriving society.

It starts at home!

This incident it is an opportunity for all of us to revisit the messages our children are receiving and do an intentional work to teach them positive values.

HUMANIDAD STANDS WITH THE ASIAN PACIFIC ISLANDER COMMUNITY. AT HUMANIDAD WE ARE COMMITTED TO EQUITY, INCLUSION AND FIGHTING RACISM IN ALL OF ITS FORMS.
