Learning and Mental Health for Young Adults and College Students of Color

BIPOC students often face a set of unique challenges in becoming an adult in a polarized society where negative stereotypes are far too common.

Students of color often face a variety of stresses that arise from structural racism in our society that can impact mental health and successful learning. According to a report from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, students of color are less likely than white students to say they could reach out to a counselor if they need support. They are also likely to have access to mental health services than white peers.

Stigma, cultural mistrust of mental health professionals, and a lack of available BIPOC professionals can lead students to suffer in silence.

In this presentation, our panel will share strategies and insights for helping students of color find recognize when support could be valuable and for accessing and receiving the support they need.
