  • @(redacted for privacy)

#bhXPERT Good afternoon everyone, I’m CJ. I’m here to learn more #BIPOC and #mentalhealth.

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Let’s get started with Question 1. #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #minoritymentalhealth

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Q1: What do you think are the unique struggles faced by BIPOC individuals in regard to mental illness in the United States? #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #minoritymentalhealth https://t.co/SYxqRHB88M

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A1. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 1): Social and cultural stigma regarding mental illness is a very commonly experienced barrier to accessing mental healthcare in America. #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A1. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 2): This effect is often magnified in BIPOC communities due to the compounded impact of limited access to healthcare coverage, mental health providers & community-based resources for people w/both acute & chronic mental health concerns. #bhXPERT #bipoc

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A1. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 3): In some instances, the stigma stems from lasting mistrust of the healthcare system due to prior discriminatory experiences in their own personal lives and/or historical discrimination such as the Tuskegee Experiment. #bhXPERT #BIPOC

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A1. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 4): In other instances, individuals may be influenced by intracultural norms that emphasize a greater reliance on non-clinical modalities within spiritual or other cultural associations. #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth

 

  • Mental Health America @MentalHealthAm

Hi everyone! We are Mental Health America – the nation’s oldest advocacy organization dedicated to mental health. #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A1. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 5): These challenges are often exacerbated by not only a shortage of mental healthcare providers across the country… #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth

 

  • @(redacted for privacy)

A1: In many BIPOC communities, it is taboo to speak about mental health concerns or mental illness. It is also difficult for BIPOC to find therapists who are also BIPOC. #bhxpert

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A1. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 6): …but also limited availability of BIPOC providers specifically, which may serve as an additional barrier for individuals who would benefit from seeing a provider with ethnic or cultural familiarity. #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC

 

  • @(redacted for privacy)

Barbara #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A1. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 7): Additionally, the lived experience associated with discrimination and societal marginalization has been implicated in the development of both physical and mental health symptoms… #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth

 

  • Mental Health America @MentalHealthAm

A1: Systemic oppression is directly tied to the #mentalhealth of BIPOC. Historical and contemporary injustices continue to perpetuate trauma through generations and into today. Learn more about the #impactoftrauma at https://t.co/PMuVfeBYvU. #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A1. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 8): …that disproportionately affect BIPOC populations, such as diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure, depression and anxiety. https://t.co/2VaWDnOoNv. #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A1. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 9): For example, in the week following the release of the George Floyd police brutality video, the rate of Black Americans experiencing depressive or anxiety symptoms increased from 36% to 41%… https://t.co/dKFqOUDAcI. #bhXPERT #BIPOC

 

  • Mental Health America @MentalHealthAm

A1: For example, Native and indigenous people in the US are disproportionately affected by #mentalhealth and substance use issues with severely limited access to support and services. #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A1. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 10): …and among Asian Americans, the rate jumped from 28% to 34%. https://t.co/dKFqOUDAcI. #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Q2: In what ways can we encourage BIPOC individuals to seek assistance, and what needs to be done to improve access to care and treatment quality for BIPOC individuals? #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth https://t.co/321yBQbPGV

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A2. Dr. Tu (part 1): There are many issues that cause individuals to hesitate to seek help for mental health problems and substance abuse. Among the main issues are access to care as well as cultural concerns. At times, there can be a distrust of the medical community. #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

RT @MentalHealthAm: A1: Systemic oppression is directly tied to the #mentalhealth of BIPOC. Historical and contemporary injustices continue…

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A2. Dr. Tu (part 2): This often requires a more thoughtful, meaningful approach. One thing I’ve found to be helpful is reaching out to community leaders. These individuals can help you reach members and help you understand the cultural differences and concerns they have. #bhXPERT

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A2. Dr. Tu (part 3): They can help you understand what is driving a certain response or better ways to engage them and their support system. Leaders come in many variations, from someone who is a religious leader, to a translator in the community. #bhXPERT #BIPOC

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A2. Dr. Tu (part 4): These folks work to help their communities. Partnering with them has given me invaluable experience in the past. I don’t assume to understand all people, but the desire to understand and help can bring us to a place of increased health and happiness. #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Here comes Question 3… #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Q3: How can we all do better to address stereotypes, negative preconceptions and bias to contribute to improved overall mental health outcomes of BIPOC individuals? #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth https://t.co/A2QCFXfay9

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A3. Dr. Vallas (part 1): The first step is self-reflection. We can all identify our own biases and negative preconceptions toward others. Read about the experiences of others. #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #minoritymentalhealth

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A3. Dr. Vallas (part 2): Seek out opportunities to foster genuine relationships with people outside of your typical social circles. We can only start to change our perceptions of others through genuine relational experience. #bhXPERT #BIPOC #minoritymentalhealth

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Please remember to use #bhXPERT in all of your replies so they appear in this feed.

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A3. Dr. Vallas (part 3): Once stereotypes and perceptions change, behavior follows. #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #minoritymentalhealth

 

  • Mental Health America @MentalHealthAm

A2. We must first create spaces that are safe and inclusive for BIPOC. That means holding up standards of accreditation and licensing bodies to antiracist policies and hiring and providing opportunities for people of color to succeed in the mental health space. #bhXPERT

 

  • Mental Health America @MentalHealthAm

A2: Without addressing racism in the mental health system, you would just be bringing BIPOC into violent spaces. #bhXPERT

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Q4: How do you think BIPOC individuals can protect their well-being and overall mental health if they encounter mental health challenges? #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth https://t.co/H7Veu5ezFH

 

  • Mental Health America @MentalHealthAm

A3: There are great resources that all providers – particularly white providers – can do to use their power and privilege to address racism in the field. https://t.co/FCn2WNVNZk #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A4. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 1): Support, support, support. It’s often said that there’s strength in numbers, and this is equally true as it relates to emotional support for marginalized communities in times of social unrest and collective trauma. #bhXPERT #BIPOCmentalhealthmonth

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A4. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 2): Generational exposure to workplace and community discrimination is a shared experience for many ethnic minorities… #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A4. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 3): …and this commonality may make it easier for individuals who are feeling distress to share their thoughts with friends, family and providers who have a firsthand experience with the same issues in our society and across the world. #bhXPERT #BIPOC

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A4. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 4): Because traumatic societal events can induce or worsen mental health symptoms, it’s very important that people who are experiencing them for the first time or noticing changes from their norm… #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #bipoc

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A4. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 5): …get as much emotional support as they can from the people around them and seek immediate professional help if/when they feel unstable or unsafe to themselves or others. #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealthMonth

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A4. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 6): Though the confluence of the coronavirus pandemic, economic hardship and civil unrest necessitate varying degrees of social distancing and relative isolation, it’s essential that… #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A4. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 7): …BIPOC communities remain engaged via alternative virtual, telephonic and social media networks to gather and share information about healthy coping and support. #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A4. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 8): Many who experience worsening mental health symptoms after viewing traumatic content online or on TV should strongly consider limiting exposure to distressing images as a means of practicing self-care and reducing day to day discomfort. #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A4. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 9): Practicing self-care also means dutiful adherence to established treatment plans and ongoing consultation with both physical and mental health providers to ensure… #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A4. Dr. Beall-Wilkins (part 10): …overall wellbeing and address any issues that might be duly impacted by compounded stress on the mind and body. #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealthMonth

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Here comes Question 5… #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Q5: How do we address mental health with a racial equity lens in order to promote mental health for all? #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth https://t.co/og7KJO2cFa

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A5. Dr. Tu (part 1): There are many steps that need to be taken. Access needs to be in the community and provided in a way that is helpful to them. We need to accept different beliefs and values. #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #minoritymentalhealth

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A5. Dr. Tu (part 2): In understanding and embracing these, we can incorporate them into the treatment plans and not just dismiss or devalue them. Culture and race should not “get in the way”. First, we must seek to understand. #bhXPERT #BIPOC #minoritymentalhealth

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A5. Dr. Tu (part 3): Individuals have different experiences in the world, and this shapes how they engage. If you only view and understand the world through your own experiences, you will likely be unsuccessful in helping people. #bhXPERT #BIPOC #minoritymentalhealth

Here comes Question 6… #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Q6: If you are a BIPOC individual, how have others’ negative preconceptions impacted your mental health? What advice would you give others with similar struggles? #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth https://t.co/pekq5uhMXs

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A6. Dr. Vallas (part 1): As a black female I’ve dealt with stress related to my attempts to ensure that I did not behave in any way to reinforce stereotypes about black women. As a result, I often diminished my voice; reluctant to speak up or show any emotion. #bhXPERT #BIPOC

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A6. Dr. Vallas (part 2): My advice: Think about how you show up. Consider how much you’re trying to compensate for the perceptions of others. Do the work, with a professional if needed, to fully embrace yourself and manage the impact on your mental health. #bhXPERT #BIPOC

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Today’s chat will end shortly. Does anyone have any final thoughts? #bhXPERT #bipocmentalhealthmonth #BIPOC #MinorityMentalHealth

#bhxpert https://t.co/N1T9A1CCui

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Let’s get started with Question 1. #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Q1: What stress-related symptoms have you or your patients/clients experienced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic? #bhXPERT https://t.co/hMwZP4kpqU

 

  • @(redacted for privacy)

@MagellanHC A1. Anxiety related to locus of control, self-worth, and identity loss as a productive, engaging member of society #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A1: From Dr. Proctor: Stress can present itself in many ways, both physically and mentally. It can range from anxiety or depression or increase aches and pains or unexplained gastrointestinal symptoms. #bhXPERT

 

  • @(redacted for privacy)

@MagellanHC #bhXPERT Q1. I would say fear about all of the uncertainty and grief for all of the loss.

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Here comes Question 2… #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Q2: Have you noticed any demographic trends among family, friends and/or patients/clients experiencing stress-related symptoms amid COVID-19 (e.g., higher prevalence among certain age groups, ethnicity or gender)? #bhXPERT https://t.co/XlJjZKh96L

 

  • @(redacted for privacy)

@MagellanHC A2. In youth, seeing more depression and sleeping from lack of social engagement. Overall seeing an increase of underlying symptoms emerging or reemerging. #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Please remember to use #bhXPERT in all of your replies so they appear in this feed.

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A2: From Dr. Proctor – The behavioral health impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been more acutely experienced by people in groups who have fewer resources at their disposal to help get them through this difficult time. #bhXPERT

 

  • @(redacted for privacy)

@MagellanHC I have not noticed too many personally, but have read about them on the news. Although, I will say that of the personal cases I know of, they have all been over the age of 30. #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Here comes Question 3… #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A2: From Dr. Procotor – It includes people from lower socioeconomic status to other minority populations that may not have as much access to financial reserves, healthcare or other forms of assistance. #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Q3: In what unique ways are you addressing personal stress-related symptoms experienced as a result of COVID-19, and/or how are you helping patients/clients? #bhXPERT https://t.co/68u9aWw580

 

  • @(redacted for privacy)

#bhxpert Q2. I feel so bad for kids missing graduations and other milestones, and older folks at higher risk who are fearful about catching the virus.

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A2: From Dr. Proctor – The elderly are also affected, many times being already somewhat isolated and potentially being at greater risk for worse health outcomes if they contract COVID-19. This additional isolation can lead to more stress and depression. #bhXPERT

 

  • @(redacted for privacy)

@MagellanHC Normalizing the reaction to an abnormal situation. Using the words they are using to explain their experience of COVID-19, which may be very different from mine. Focusing on helping others cope helps me accept my own need for coping. #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Q3: From Dr. Proctor – Patients can learn that through adversity and trauma, they can build coping mechanisms and skills that they can use not only during this difficult time but during future challenges. #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Here comes Question 4… #bhXPERT

 

  • @(redacted for privacy)

@MagellanHC I actually try to “unplug” for a few days from the news on COVID-19 and speak to friends and family on the phone regularly. I also make regular trips to the park for sunshine and mind clearing. #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Q4: What specific aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic do you feel are most contributing to stress-related symptoms in Americans? #bhXPERT https://t.co/f8BacLkpsF

 

  • @(redacted for privacy)

#bhxpert Q3. I’m trying to stay hopeful that this will get better and hopefully we’ll learn a lot and be prepared if and when we experience something else like this.

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A3: From Dr. Proctor-Looking at core beliefs such as how you view yourself, those around you & the world itself and reevaluating what has changed, how you have coped with the changing environment & added stress & how you can build on those coping mechanisms can be a start #bhXPERT

 

  • @(redacted for privacy)

@MagellanHC Uncertainty. The sheer number of individuals no longer feeling economic or health security. #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

@(redacted for privacy)_ Q3: From Dr. Proctor – Building and focusing on your relationships can help enhance your supports and lead to improved resilience. It is OK to ask for help. In particular, seek out healthy relationships. #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Here comes Question 5…#bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A4: From Dr. Proctor-Isolation, both physical and social, is one factor that is contributing extensively to the stress people are experiencing. #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

Q5: What can we learn from stress-related symptoms experienced as a result of COVID-19, and how can we use this knowledge to prepare for similar events in the future? #bhXPERT https://t.co/N8903QFBER

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A4: From Dr. Proctor-The fear of getting sick or even dying is another stressful aspect of the COVID-19 pandemic. This also includes the fear of those you love becoming ill or even dying. This fear of personal loss can be devastating for some people. #bhXPERT

 

  • Magellan Healthcare @MagellanHC

A4: From Dr. Proctor-The fear of losing your job or not being able to survive financially after losing a job is impacting a very large portion of our society, and when you add the isolation and fear of the virus, it compounds the stress. #bhXPERT

 

  • @(redacted for privacy)

@MagellanHC Q5: Finding ways for increasing the economic and health security through a dignified wage and healthcare for all. People cannot expect healthcare to make up for the insecurity of economic, health, and racial disadvantage. #bhXPERT

@MagellanHC Q5: We can though use this as a teachable moment on compassion for those who face mental health challenges every day, and not just when stressed by a pandemic. #bhXPERT

#bhxpert Q5. I hope we can learn that we collectively have power to stop the virus and that we can support each other through this in so many ways.

Living intentionally. Know how you show love to others and find a way to do that. If you are a doer, put that into an action no matter how small. Pot seasonal plants and give to your neighbors who will not see family during the spring holy days. #bhXPERT

 

  • @(redacted for privacy)

Trying to tap creativity in seeing friends from a physical distance. We did a tailgate take-out double date at a park. If nice this weekend, will bring a camping chair to the front yard. Planning a dog walk in a fancy neighborhood to enjoy the gardens together. #bhXPERT

  • @(redacted for privacy)

Thankfully not ill. For those who are, love yourself the way you love others. Have patience with your mind and body while combating illness. Last year I had walking viral pneumonia and it took almost 3 months to feel back to full energy. How much more for this virus! #bhXPERT
