Black public servants’ class-action suit litigants seeking $100-million mental health fund from feds
The legal team involved in the lawsuit made a request to the government early on that as litigants continue to suffer and deal with the effects of trauma, they need additional support.

The request for a mental health support fund is 'really about recognizing not just the pecuniary and non-pecuniary losses, but also the actual damage and harm that this does,' Mr. Achampong says.
