February 29 @ 4:00 pm - March 1 @ 5:00 pm EST

Free

Professor Ahmad Greene-Hayes (Harvard Divinity School) and Professor George Aumoithe (FAS, History and African and African American Studies) propose this interdisciplinary symposium, integrating mind, brain, and behavior insights into the exploration of Black religious practices and their impact on mental health.

We question how Black religious spaces can enhance mental health outcomes, considering these spaces’ dual role as both sanctuaries and potential impediments to open discourse.

The symposium brings together experts from history, public health, psychiatry, African American studies, religious studies, and civic society with a focus on understanding the neurobiological and socio-behavioral dynamics contributing to mental health stigmatization within Black communities.

The symposium aims to illuminate how societal stressors, such as racism, influence brain function and behavior, thereby affecting mental health, while also exploring resilience mechanisms among Black religious communities.

This project aligns with the Harvard Mind Brain Behavior Interfaculty Initiative’s mission of facilitating interdisciplinary collaboration to address complex issues, contributing to a broader understanding of the interplay between mind, brain, and behavior in the context of Black mental health.
