Mental Health and Wellness in the Black Lives Matter Movement

A conversation on how student activism and institutionalized racism impact marginalized students.

In continuation of the last Black Lives Matter in Higher Education discussion, we would like to focus our attention on the mental health/wellness aspects of the Black Lives Matter movement and how student activism, institutionalized racism and navigating academia impact marginalized students. Helping to center this conversation, Professor Derald Sue will talk about his work on microaggressions in relation to the intersection of BLM and mental health, while a panel of masters and doctoral students of the Counseling/Clinical Psychology department and HPSE program will share their experiences and research related to this matter.

It is has become increasingly apparent that racial battle fatigue is affecting our students, faculty, and staff of color and as scholar-practitioners. We must consider what that means for the field of Higher Education. Equally as important is the experiences of our students, faculty, and staff as a result of the racial unrest on campuses nationwide. We hope that many of you can attend and participate in this very crucial discussion.
