My emotional appetite is ravenous. It wants to have, eat, drink, do anything but experience the uncertainty of the current circumstances.

Emancipation was only one battle won in the centuries-long struggle for Black Civil Rights – a struggle that is far from over. Racism continues to rear its head in every aspect of American life. Income and housing inequality, police brutality, voter suppression, hate speech, and political bigotry are just a few of the forms that racism still takes. One racial justice issue that doesn’t get discussed nearly as much as it should is healthcare equity. Toya Roberson-Moore, MD, Adult, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist, explores the state of racial inequity in healthcare in this post.

In response to the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and others, along with many other longstanding injustices, ERC | Insight voiced its unconditional support of the anti-racist movement. We say it again: Black Lives Matter. We strongly reject racism, hate, and discrimination, as they run counter to what is good and ethical, and clearly stand in opposition to ERC | Insight’s core values.

We strongly reject racism, hate, and discrimination. They run counter to what is good and ethical, and clearly stand in opposition to ERC/Insight’s core values of compassion and integrity. But believing in values is never sufficient. We have an obligation to make sure that we are systematically living up to them as an organization.

Currently, states in the U.S. are mandating that we distance ourselves from others who are possible carriers of COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus. Social disruption with no sign of a solution causes psychological stress (Wohleb 2011). There is a feeling of repeatedly being disappointed, and this defeatist attitude is closely linked to depression.

The Atlanta-based bloggers just came out with a children’s book, "Her Body Can," that fills this much-needed gap with a book about self-acceptance and body positivity. It sends the message that your body can too, and it doesn’t matter what you look like, your size, your religion, your race or your physical abilities.
