Wednesdays, 11:30-12:30pm (January 13th-March 31st, 2021)

There have been many horrific occurrences this year involving systemic racism, oppression, discrimination and threats to Black and BIPOC psychological well-being at the University of Windsor and the Campus Community. We recognize the severe trauma that these and many other unspoken events are causing you. We offer this Drop-In Group as a safe space for you to listen, to support one another and to begin to heal. Staff present to facilitate this process will include a Black therapist and another allied therapist from Student Counselling Centre. Although this can never be enough, we want to be a part of the change and see this as a way forward.
