Mental Health resources for Black and Brown employees
The combined impact of police violence, a pandemic disproportionately affecting People of Color, and centuries of systemic racism place undue stress on Black and Brown communities. Balanced You stands with Black Lives Matter and recognizes the resiliency and strength that lies within the Black and Brown communities. Balanced You also recognizes that, because you and your community are sacred, caring for your well-being is an act of resistance.
In the event that you are seeking additional support, we have partnered with the King County Black/African Affinity Group and Dr. Gloria Ngezaho, Workforce Equity Manager with the Department of Human Resources, to develop a video that highlights emotional well-being resources available to you through King County. If you have any questions, please contact BalancedYou@kingcounty.gov.
