H.E.R. Taskforce Town Hall: Mental Health in Minority Communities During the Pandemic
Mayor Sylvester Turner and the Houston Health Equity Response (H.E.R.) Taskforce are pleased to announce the second installment of the Mayor’s Health Equity Response (H.E.R) virtual town hall series, Mental Health in Minority Communities During the Pandemic. Hosted by the H.E.R. Task Force’s Faith Community Leaders Subcommittee, the town hall will be held on Friday, August 21, from 6-7:30PM CDT.

This ongoing engagement is dedicated to providing a safe and inclusive space for residents to express their anxieties and feelings of isolation during COVID-19. A panel of mental health experts, faith and community leaders and City of Houston staff will provide critical information and access to mental health resources where individuals in need can seek care and support.

The three topics of focus for this town hall will be:

-Grieving: Processing Death During the Pandemic
-Exploring Mental Health Interventions for our Youth and Adults
-The Unraveling of Social Networks: Social Isolation

The H.E.R. Initiative and Task Force was launched in April 2020 by Mayor Turner and is a vital component of the City of Houston’s COVID-19 Response and Recovery Effort, especially for vulnerable and at-risk populations.

This initiative is led by five Mayor’s Office Division Directors with implementation visioning and support from the H.E.R. Task Force, which is comprised of more than 50 civic leaders. Mayoral appointees to the Task Force include medical specialists, public health professionals, communications creatives, data scientists, technology experts and faith leaders.
