Austin Child Guidance Center regularly hosts an online discussion addressing the mental health impact of race and racism on children of color. These discussions started as a response to the social unrest in the summer of 2020, and offer a platform for unpacking current events and provide strategies that families, schools and the community can employ to support children experiencing increased trauma or stress.
Moderated by ACGC’s Executive Director, Kristen Pierce-Vreeke, each discussion welcomes panelists to share different perspectives, resources, and encouragement to participants.
Panel discussions are geared towards helping parents, educators, nonprofit professionals and community members support the mental health of children and teens of color.
Panel discussions are free of charge. Donations are gladly accepted.
