We are requesting the Government of Guyana immediately cease the incarceration, oppression, vilifying and deportation of Haitian Nationals and other Africans in Guyana. More importantly  dial back tensions with communities in alignment with The International Decade for People of African Descent, 2015–2024, which was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in Resolution (68/237) adopted on 23 December 2013. The theme of the International Decade is “People of African descent: recognition, justice”.

This was a call to action! We seek to engage in new permanent bilateral mechanisms and chair a Global inquiry into the outcomes as well as the mental health of black people based on a position taken by many regimes like Guyana that continue to be racist.

It is scary and intimidating for  black men, women and children, descendants of the Trans Atlantic slave trade to be hyper-vigilant, constantly looking around and constantly worrying about being victimized, especially by police. 

There is great need for psychiatric interventions as statistics are glaring. Racism, or discrimination based on race or ethnicity, is a key contributing factor in the onset of disease. It is also responsible for increasing disparities in physical and mental health, young people also experience the ongoing stress of living with and witnessing racism and as targets of discrimination remain vulnerable.

Historically, such experiences had not been included in the typical scales used to assess acute and chronic stress. 

Guyana and the Caribbean were built on the backs of African Slaves and we condemn any action the current administration is taking to remove or oppress Africans while embracing  and setting up supports For Venezuelan,Chinese and Indian Nationals . We are also requesting immediate placement of an African Regional Consulate in Guyana, who today among other notable systemic failures ranks high on the Corruption perception index (CPI) and in the top 3 for suicide in the world, ranking highest in the region. 

This change will allow hundreds of children women and men to live, work and continue their education while receiving mental health and other supports being offered through WBMHO and otherpartner humanitarian agencies like Guyana Women Strong.
