Students on the team:
The evidence suggests that communities of color across the United States have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, exacerbating existing problems of identifying resources for improving mental health and addressing crises of addiction, mental health, and economic despair. This project will build upon work started in summer 2021 where the student team has mapped mental health resources (focusing on the urban centers of Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton). The next year will involve refining that map as well as embarking on autoethnographic research throughout the Lehigh Valley to determine what communities are most in need, and how resources can be funnelled to those communities to have the greatest impact.
