BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - July is BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) Mental Health Month.

BIPOC Mental Health Month highlights the unique mental health challenges of historically disenfranchised or oppressed racial groups in the United States.

Lisa Ibekwe, an Atlanta, Georgia-based licensed therapist who also serves clients in New England, joined our Erin Brown to talk about intergenerational trauma and racial trauma. They also discussed how videos and images of police brutality and other forms of abuse against minorities affect the brains of BIPOC adults and children. Watch the video to see the full interview.
