Journey Together: Sharing Our Lived Experiences. A Support Group for  Black and Racialized Students

This is a 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 counsellors from Health and Wellness Services who are themselves persons from racialized backgrounds.

Running bi-weekly on Wednesdays February 1-March 29.
