Hector Ramirez
24:23
Communities of Color reminds me of how some folks still call me "colored"
Hector Ramirez
25:39
For communities of color we constantly are having to be resilient when we experience racism, ableism, colorism, and stigma.
Hector Ramirez
27:17
Say the word "Racism"
Hector Ramirez
28:20
For American Indian & Indigenous folks its more than decades! Its actually centuries!
Hector Ramirez
28:40
Genocide

Maria Coghill
32:26
Yes - I saw someone call it "end stage capitalism" - feels accurate to me
Ron Melka
32:28
Veterans of the wars for the past 120 years
Hector Ramirez
32:36
Racism is the oldest, deadliest, and most costly public health issue in American. But its not talked about. We have to use words like equity and wellness and not talk about how racism is alive and thriving.
Kerstin Springgay
32:54
Yes, the mental health sigma against veterans.
Maria Coghill
33:04
We need to talk about the root cause of racism - white supremacy
Emily White
33:10
Mental health stigma across all demographics
Hector Ramirez
33:25
Equity is the word we have to use instead of racism. We cant use the word racism and instead we have to use things like equity. One is the problem and the other is the solution or tool to solve the problem. But if we cant call out the problem for what it is that is NOT equity.
Violeta Iguchi
33:28
Poverty is also trauma
Hector Ramirez
33:39
So true Violeta!
Kerstin Springgay
33:45
Yes
Denise Murdoch
34:00
Are we addressing the intentional fomentation of chaos and crisis of our public health?care systems through through the furtherance of a false medical model for behavioral health ?
Jacqueline Mitchell
34:18
Unchecked Broken Foster care system
Mary Kreitz
34:41
Thank you, Hector, for having the courage to call it out for what it really is.
Kabrina Bland
34:56
Yes, Jacqueline! So true about foster care system.
Hector Ramirez
38:12
That is why Cultural Proficiency is so much better than cultural competence and what ever cultural humulity is.
Richard Moses
38:20
How can we get to a safe place when so many of us remain in our information bubbles and retreat to our "tribes" after 5pm every day and remain there on the weekends?
Hector Ramirez
39:04
"normalizes" that is ableist language, can we really "normalize" things
Violeta Iguchi
40:01
What would you use instead, Hector?
Denise Murdoch
40:13
Yes, thanks Ami, becoming curious about our own cultural feels hugely important. Feels hard for those of us with European ancestry who are disconnected from our families and ancestors too.
Emily White
40:48
Richard it's important for everyone in the workplace to be cognizant of the language used and actively work to change the working environment to be more equitable. It starts from the top down, but also has to be done by each individual of the organization
Rachel Shuster
41:07
🙌
Hector Ramirez
42:05
Violeta, there are great examples of how to avoid ableist language by using Plain Language in academia and presentations. That is both an accessibility consideration but also a trauma informed approached to cultural proficiency practices
Martie Finkelstein
42:54
What about when we feel like we're part of the system that's causing that violence and trauma?
Hector Ramirez
43:20
So true Ami, just thinking of what has happened with Twitter, and also the horrible violence.
Marte Birnbaum
45:34
Arrrrggggghhhhh. Too true!
Denise Murdoch
45:43
Yesireee, Ami
Hector Ramirez
46:11
Internal Institutional Stigma in our systems of care are a very big issue! Particularly around mental health conditions
Denise Murdoch
47:14
Trusted adults can and should include our caregivers, doctors, therapists, etc. However, doctors remain the most undereducated regarding behavioral health in the world imo.
Hector Ramirez
47:18
I fly off the handel all the time when I experience racism, stigma, discrimination.
Emory Alexander
47:20
I was a few minutes late to logging in, did anyone mention if we will be able to access and share the recording of this session?
Emily White
48:05
Yes we will Emory
Emory Alexander
48:14
Thank you!
Emily White
48:27
You're welcome
Denise Murdoch
49:30
The Root of Hypocrisy in America is how undereducated our doctors are in the nervous system and restorative sleep education.
Denise Murdoch
49:44
in my opinion
Hector Ramirez
50:47
Great presentation Ami. You gave me so much to think about today.
Kelly Frizen
50:49
Face to face, smiles, and tone in emails are all so important with colleagues
Carlyn Arteaga
52:32
Encouraged to use sick, vacation, and PTO without gatekeeping.
Linda Kim
52:39
Our organization struggles. Some staff will not even respond if you say good morning. They will just look right through you and walk right you as if you aren't even there.
Martie Finkelstein
52:55
monthly therapist supervision/support meetings
Emily Kling
52:57
Inclusive ARGs, Pride, POC, BEN, PAC
Taylor Prather
53:00
I let people know how much I appreciate not only them and what they do for the org but who THEY ARE and the perspectives they bring to the table.
Emily White
53:04
My organization hired me to provide Trauma-Informed Care to our staff to help with crisis situation, distress, and secondary trauma. I have office hours specifically for staff 3 times a week
Donna Nesbitt
53:07
I have had supervisors who have been excessively racist, homophobic/transphobic, and just overall incompetent when it came to the various aspects of culture while working in MH as well as SUD but voicing those concerns resulted in being dismissed as "too sensitive" or berated for speaking up. However, my current organization does an excellent job with trying to be more inclusive as well as affirmative, ensuring we're all supported while supporting our clients. I'm currently on the Diversity committee and just recently did a training on working with LGBTQI+ clients.
Dakota Brown
53:08
Our employer provides and actively engages in accessibility to People with Disabilities
Rola Aamar

Utilize "breathe sessions" to promote open conversation in small groups.
colleen sokira
53:20
face to face group meetings on at least a monthly basis to share and listen
Hector Ramirez
53:20
How can people know they have not done harm if folks are not allowed to say they are being harmed. Lets remember what happened to Georged Floyd. There was a leg on his neck, he was saying he cant breath. When we don't talk address the harm w/o blaiming/scapegoating the folks who are hurt we just cant breath.
Fernando Villegas

Rachel Shuster
53:38
An individual in our department regularly holds "Courageous Conversations" where we are open to discuss work and non-work issues. We've utilized these meetings to discuss social and political unrest and social justice issues as they are happening. It is helpful to discuss this with our team rather than avoid it.
Ron Melka
53:38
We often have pot luck luncheons to celebrate holidays, including other cultures.
Shawna Florio
53:53
we encourage time off, encourage constant communication (we have an open door policy and encourage individuals to join conversations that they hear if they're interested), we have weekly staff meetings so individuals are able to join projects they're interested in,
Mariah Samuels
53:56
outings for staff

We practice cultural humility. We continue to build a shared language with staff on how to hold BRAVE space conversations and we host monthly opportunities to have open discussions on the "isms" (racism, ageism, sexism, etc) as well as any topics under the JEDI umbrella. We also have Cultural Bulletin boards that get updated each month to spot light cultures from around the world.
Sarah Wilczynski
54:33
We have a 3 by 3 rule. When you are within 3 yards of someone you acknowledge them and then you are within 3 feet, you engage with them (hello, etc.). Our boss asks for our thoughts, opinions, and ideas and actually uses them. They also encourage us to use our PTO and expects us to fully step away from work when we take time off.
Karyleen Irizarry
54:36
The organization provides training and continually engages in diversity elements to address equality.
Amy Moore
54:42
my boss is very successful in isolating our team from office drama. very straight about what is going on and gets it out of the way
Lisa Wright Martin

Jacqueline Mitchell
57:24
we have also done a lot of trainings around self care and Suicide awareness and prevention.
Lisa Wright Martin
57:42
Monthly "engagement" activities for all staff to foster "fun": Most recent, Pumpkin decorating contest!
Hector Ramirez
58:05
One of the leading reasons why so many highly marginalized and disenfranchised communities have had the worst health outcomes to COVID19 is the racial/ableist/heterosexist disparities that drive mental health conditions
Denise Murdoch
58:19
Yes, thanks Aaron, high numbers and go along with an intentional fomentation of crisis and chaos thanks to pharmaceutical and other special interests imo running their game plan through our public systems and the Biden administration imo.
Hector Ramirez
01:00:53
Hopping Aaron will say the word
Maria Coghill
01:02:39
Hearing a lot of background noise -anyone else?
Emily White
01:02:47
I am too Maria
Shawna Florio
01:02:51
I am too!
Jacqueline Mitchell
01:02:53
A lot of background noise is distracting.
Laure Laughlin
01:02:55
Me too
Denise Murdoch
01:03:30
Sorry about that everyone 🙏
Hector Ramirez
01:03:31
So true about safe spaces. In Los Angeles County all of our public operated mental health clinics have armed security guards and armed LA County sheriff. For so many of our communities that is retraumatizing to go to heal at places where we don't feel safe.
Jane Lindsey
01:03:56
Hector, that sounds awful :-(
National Council for Mental Wellbeing PIC 1
01:04:05
Sorry for the background noise, all - Aaron has some construction going on in his background
Angela Campos
01:05:43
I personally dread announcements of group pumpkin decorating events/ happy hours/ talent show etc, and other creative bonding times. Personally as a parent I have a large commitment to those activities outside of work. For me building culture is about nurturing professional grow up me. My lived experience is that these events often conflict with me getting things done that move us towards making the mission come alive. I appreciate many of the suggestions posted in this chat but wanted to convey in practice these special staff events usually lead to staff having to commit time to planning, implementing, and cleaning in their work schedule. I feel like it is disconnected from my work life balance. I bond better with my peers through creative works that lead us to gain new ideas for how we can grow as professionals. My current Ed has included interactive introspective activities as part of our monthly staff meetings which has helped me better understand my coworkers. I felt we grew in emotional intimacy.
Hector Ramirez
01:06:14
Los Angeles County has the largest number of people with mental health conditions (mental illnesses/mental brain disorders/psychiatric disabilities). The majority are in Jails or unhoused out on the streets. Not because they don't seek services but bc things like fear/stigma/biases :-(
Hector Ramirez
01:07:39
I heard someone use the term "lived expertise" in addition to "lived experience". It was a presentation on peer certification in California
Jacquilyn Davis
01:07:57
@Angela - thank you for sharing. We host monthly offerings DURING the work day for this very reason. Staff stay on the clock and it's 100% voluntary to join in.
Lisa Wright Martin
01:09:49
Thanks @Jacquilyn Davis for sharing that clarification. It's the same for our "engagement activities" as well. Hope that helps, @Angela Campos.
Hector Ramirez
01:09:50
"Uncomfortable Spaces and Uncomfortable Conversations” sounds like my next presentation proposal
Jane Lindsey
01:10:06
Hector, I love the term "lived expertise" (I'm a professional with my own lived expertise & have the Certified Recovery Support Specialist --CRSS-- credential in IL)
Debbi Ashby
01:12:16
Wish our smaller worksite would make a private space for staff to go to meditate, decompress when needed. Sign ups for such a space would always be full!
Martie Finkelstein
01:14:39
here is that article with the diagrams: https://focus.psychiatryonline.org/doi/epdf/10.1176/appi.focus.20150017
Violeta Iguchi
01:15:30
Thanks for the article, Martie!
Denise Murdoch
01:15:51
Very helpful your earlier share, Angela. Thank you. Feels like our organizations locally have become siloed purposefully with varying missions that have ended up detracting from accomplishing true behavioral and mental health wellbeing within organizations and collectively with other county organizations.
Hector Ramirez
01:18:00
What really is a "stakeholder"? This is also a big problem in our systems of care, who is really being engaged as authentic stakeholders? This goes to the "Nothing About Us With Out Us" issue.
Tanya Sorrell
01:18:29
Thanks for this presentation
Amy Moore
01:20:19
agree on Parks and Recreation. Their teams are being asked to address homelessness issues and low-barriered services with scholarships for youth and families. Can have gym and fitness, showers, pool.
Jacqueline Mitchell
01:21:05
we need more partners that are available after the 9:00 to 5:00 workday and weekends.
Emily White
01:21:32
@Jacqueline....yes, i agree!
Danny Medina
01:21:40
I understand that we have to be conscious of time...And speaking only for my self, these slides are flying by a little too quick for me to have an opportunity to absorb the "Meat & Potatoes" of the mort informative and impactful slides.
Danny Medina
01:22:11
*more
Emory Alexander
01:22:33
I think that there are missed opportunity for partners, many of our partnerships are transactional while they could certainly be more transformational like what Amy was discussing with parks
National Council for Mental Wellbeing PIC 1
01:23:18
Hi Danny!
