INTRODUCING, BLACK + MENTAL HEALTH + MATTERS!
Developed by Natalie Patterson, Black + Mental Health + Matters is an interactive workshop* that is designed to be a place of refuge for Black students.
Knowing that Black humans in North America face unique and specific barriers to mental health, this workshop provides a place for Black students to be seen and heard, both collectively and individually. It equips participants with tools to help them heal and thrive by connecting students with culturally specific mental health resources available to them.
While this event centers Black students, organizers may choose to invite all campus community members to attend, including allies.
*Black + Mental Health + Matters workshops are offered both in-person and virtually.
