We are heartbroken over the death of George Floyd while in police custody last week and strongly
believe that those responsible must be held accountable. It is distressing to see the pain and grief that many people are feeling,
and the disturbances that are rocking the country, as they shed a fresh light on longstanding social injustice and racism that
continue to fester in our society. These events also remind us that the mental health of all our citizens is of utmost importance,
especially right now as we deal with the twin stressors of the COVID-19 pandemic and senseless killings of African-Americans.
Throughout Florida, our mental health and substance use treatment providers are focused on a mission of ensuring
that everyone in their communities has access to high-quality health services. As an association committed to the health
and wellbeing of all people, regardless of race, we will continue to focus on understanding social determinants of health to
assist our patients as individuals and we are committed to having conversations about the continued impact of
institutional racism on mental health.

We feel that the National Council for Behavioral Health said it best: “Unless we address social injustice issues throughout
the county and come face to face with racism in our communities we will never be fully healthy – physically or mentally.”
