Culturally Inclusive Mental Health

September 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Presented in partnership with JED Foundation

Anxiety, depression, and stress are common features of young adult lives. For BIPOC students, LGBTQ+ students, and those with other potentially under-represented identities, this phenomenon is even more acute as they often face additional stressors and may be less likely to access needed care. Participants will learn how they can support positive mental health with young people in these populations.

Presenter:
