Amplifying Voices of Future Leaders: Supporting the Mental Health of Students Speaking Up Against Racial Injustice

Activism and speaking up against racial injustice can be a protective factor for the mental health of college students, but can also have an immense toll as they try to focus on their academics. As COVID-19 has disproportionately affected Black, Indigenous, and People Color (BIPOC) in devastating ways, protesting and demonstrating against police violence and other systemic racial injustices can add even more stress. This webinar, which is co-sponsored by The Steve Fund and JED, focuses on how higher education professionals can provide support, share resources, and advocate for the prioritization of protecting the emotional health of students.
