Help Them Overcome Barriers and Navigate Resources So They Can Succeed on Your Campus
BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) students at predominately white institutions are less likely to utilize counseling services than their White counterparts, yet they are often at a greater risk for mental health difficulties.
What barriers are making it difficult for your BIPOC students to get help for mental health concerns on your campus?
Is your campus prepared to engage those who are truly at risk, particularly when those who need it most are often reluctant to seek care?
Join our presenters as they address the challenges your BIPOC students face navigating mental health support on college campuses and how to provide appropriate resources to help them overcome the common barriers that prevent them from seeking the critical care they need before it becomes a crisis. Additionally, equip your faculty and staff with the training, skills and tools to recognize students in need and to serve as a resource for their success to provide additional layers of support.
Foster a campus climate to help empower, instill hope and provide diverse coping resources to help your BIPOC students succeed socially and academically.
As a result of this online training, you will be able to:
- Identify on-campus social and environmental factors that may negatively impact BIPOC students — move past these stigmas so you can provide access to needed care and support in a way that resonates with this unique population.
- Be equipped with the training, skills, and tools you need to successfully work with BIPOC students as a staff, faculty member or counselor — better help with student engagement, satisfaction and retention by serving as a meaningful support structure for students in need.
- Break down the stigma for BIPOC students seeking help for mental health issues, increase your own comfort level talking about it and have the confidence to refer appropriately — prepare yourself, faculty and staff to talk about the mental health of at-risk students easily and effectively.
- Increase awareness of your own culture, positionality and biases — foster personal strategies to decrease potential harm that you may unintentionally cause when working with BIPOC students on your campus.
- Understand the impact that mental health has on your students’ academic, social and emotional success — create a campus-wide approach to mental health so students don’t fall through the cracks.
