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.

Whether you are located in downtown Saginaw, the suburbs of Saginaw, other nearby places such as Flint, Pontiac, or anywhere else in Michigan, 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.

I ask clients, “if you had a magic wand how would you use it to change your life?” Responses highlight the gap between what men want and what they have. I help you navigate this gap by identifying/addressing barriers to creating the life you want.
