If you’ve ever been a victim of racial trauma, you may be aware of the scars it can leave behind. Addressing your own racist tendencies or attempting to heal from racial discrimination will take a concerted effort, and having professional support can make things much easier.

In order to make progress, you need an anti-racist mental health professional who can help you change your behavior and thinking patterns and give you tools to move forward. Wherever you are located in Georgia from Albany to Warner Robins or even Macon, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

The Effects of Racial Discrimination

Racial discrimination has a clear impact on your mental health. Here are some of the most common effects of racism on mental health:

  • You relive racist events and have trouble healing from them.
  • You avoid people or places that remind you of racist trauma you’ve experienced.
  • You don’t feel good about yourself, especially pertaining to your race.
  • You’re easily offended or frightened, given that you’ve been hurt in the past.
  • You feel depressed as a result of the trauma.
  • You frequently feel stressed, anxious, or depressed.

This is not a full list of the effects of racial discrimination. Systemic racism can also lead to a lack of necessary resources like:

  • Supportive or appropriate mental health care.
  • Job and economic opportunities.
  • Education.

To learn more about the effects of racism on mental health, read licensed therapist Michael Friedman’s article about intergenerational racial trauma.
