Black and Racialized Student Supports
For Black and Racialized students who are experiencing race-related stress and are seeking a safe space to talk, they can request to speak with counsellors who are themselves persons of these communities with lived experience. Please call 519 661-3030 to book an appointment.
This is a virtual support group for Black and Racialized Students. This wellness group aims to create a safe and healing space to share race-related lived experiences including race-related stress, navigating environments, renewal and care. Together in sharing our common lived experiences, we draw a collective voice to:
• not feel alone
• process and learn from each other's wisdom
• create a community to uplift and support one another
• empower through collective healing, growth, and transformation
This group will be co-facilitated by two psychotherapists from Health and Wellness Services who are themselves persons from racialized backgrounds. Group Facilitators: Rose Aquino and Ramona Fernandez.
Call Health and Wellness Services at 519 661-3030 to register.
There are limited spaces in this program, so be sure to sign up as soon as possible.
Once signed-up, a group facilitator will contact you to do an individual intake.
If space is available, students may join the group throughout the term.
Fall 2021 dates TBD.
