HPHR Publishes the PRISM Anthology

HPHR is pleased to announce the release of the anthology PRISM: Mental Health Through the Lens of Difference, edited by Krista L. R. Cezair.

This unique volume leverages unique approaches to examining mental health at the intersection of gender, sexual orientation, race and ethnicity, age, socioeconomic status, and migrant status. How do women, members of the LGBTQ+ communities and immigrant/refugee communities, Black and Brown groups, and economically and politically disenfranchised peoples experience mental health, or the lack thereof? In other words, mental health does not occur in a vacuum. The outcomes of mental health are intersectional by their very nature.

With an army of HPHR Journal public health aficionados and the stewardship of the Boston Congress of Public Health, PRISM explores some of these nuances, delving into the health disparities that exist for these marginalized groups. A greater burden of disease, injury, violence, and truncated opportunities to achieve the apotheosis of health incontrovertibly exists for racial, ethnic, sexual, and gender minorities. There is the proclamation: these often-negative differences in mental health outcomes are not innate or inevitable, coincidental or self-inflicted – but rather systemic, structural, and absolutely preventable. These differences emerge from the flames of ongoing racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, and xenophobic discrimination, the scourge of rampant prejudice, and the ever-present bias that intercalate themselves throughout the fabric of society.
