Olive Harvey College presents: Black + Mental Health + Matters (Online)

Black + Mental Health + Matters is a 1.5-hour virtual 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 wellness, this workshop provides a place for them to be seen and heard, both collectively and individually. Equipping participants with tools to help them heal and thrive, Black + Mental Health + Matters uses creative practices to center and uplift. 

While this event centers Black students, all campus community members are invited to attend. However, comments or participation from allies that pull focus away from Black mental health will be respectfully redirected.

I want to use what I learned today to inform other Black people, especially Black Men, that […] we can’t keep things bottled up. Talking to someone is ok. "
