Othering is the conscious or unconscious assumption that someone from one group or community is less desirable than someone from your group or community. This “us and them” mentality can have devastating effects on individuals and communities. People who are othered tend to have increased feelings of isolation, higher rates of depression, and more issues with mental health than people who aren’t.

Thankfully, we can discourage othering and become better allies to communities outside our own.

Our webinar, Othered No More: How to Be A Good Ally was hosted by Monica Elliott, Senior Manager of Clinical Training at Spring Health. The webinar covers:

  • What it really means to "other" someone
  • The short and long-term effects of this exclusion
  • How to avoid othering folks
  • How to be a better ally
  • The benefits of allyship
