A Statement from the College for Behavioral Health Leadership (CBHL)
The killing of Mr. George Floyd has once again brought into stark reality the undeniable impact of racism in the United States. The ingrained racism in our society contributes not only to deaths in the criminal justice system, but also hurts the health and wellness of communities of color through disparities in health care, housing, education, employment, income and neighborhood quality of life.
The College for Behavioral Health Leadership (CBHL) is a place where leaders collaborate to help communities across the nation improve behavioral health wellness and address health inequity. CBHL condemns all acts of unequal treatment of Black, Brown and other communities of color. We recognize the rage and helplessness that has led to rioting. We are committed to working in partnership with our Board, staff and members to ensure that the work of CBHL promotes an understanding of and attention to eliminating systemic racism and subsequent health inequity.
We hope that you join us in this important cause.
Yours in peace,
The CBHL Board of Directors
