Journey Together: Sharing Our Lived Experiences. A Support Group for Black, Indigenous and Persons of Colour.
This is a virtual support group for students who identify as racialized (Black, Indigenous, Person of Colour). This is a pilot wellness group that aims to create a safe and healing space to share lived experiences with race-related stress. 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 who are themselves Persons of Colour. Group Facilitators: Rose Aquino and Ramona Fernandez.
Individuals interested can call 519 661-3030 to register. Please keep in mind that there is a cap on spots available, so be sure to sign up as soon as possible. Once signed-up, a group facilitator will contact you to do an individual intake. Please note that you are welcome to join throughout the term.
The summer group will be held biweekly on Wednesdays from May 19 to August 11, 2021, 1:30 - 3 PM (via Zoom).
