Let’s Reimagine Black Mental Health Together!

Join CBHN and RJOY for an interactive experience to redefine mental health and wellness

Join us for an afternoon of healing, health, and harmony hosted by CBHN and Restorative Justice for Oakland Youth (RJOY), featuring music, poetry, drumming, and African centered rituals! RSVP NOW (make a hyperlink to registration) for a mind, body, soul, and spirit health and healing experience and a conversation on Black Mental health and wellness as we build community resilience in addressing racism, COVID-19 and mental health diapositives.

ALL are welcome – Community members, Community Based Organizations, Educators, Key Stakeholders, Mental health advocates and professionals, and Alameda County officials and employees. Your participation and input will help inform policy and community defined evidence-based practices to Reimagine Black Mental Health!

This event is made possible through the support of the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC) and California Pan-Ethnic Health Network (CPEHN).



Big Day of Giving is May 6th

Mark your calendars California Black Health Network (CBHN) is participating in the Sacramento Region Community Foundation’s Big Day of Giving, an annual 24-hour community-wide initiative to grow local philanthropy on May 6th, 2021.  African Americans and Black Immigrants rank the highest amongst almost all chronic disease and behavioral health disparities (Noonan, Velasco-Mondragon, & Wager 17-20). The COVID-19 epidemic has exacerbated this issue and consequently created an urgent need for CBHN to support, respond, and mitigate its impact on an already vulnerable population. Black Californians have the lowest life expectancy compared to all other racial and ethnic groups across the state, especially Black males.

Help CBHN raise $20,000  towards Black Health Equity. Thanks so our sponsor, California institute for Behavioral Health Solutions, the first $2,500 will be MATCH! If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact Jade Parker,
