Black Student Support and Healing Space

Identity, Currently Offered

Black Student Support and Healing Space is a group for Black students to connect, chat, and share. 

Black Student Support and Healing Space:

Discussing racism can activate a person’s emotional responses. If you find yourself in this position, please reach out for support from our Mental Health Nurses during our hours of operation at 778-782-4615. Relevant support for Black students is also available 24/7 with My SSP. Specific counsellor options can be requested.

What is Black Student Support and Healing Space?

The goal of the group is to offer support and create community with other Black students at SFU. Topics of discussion are broad and can range from sharing personal goals and achievements to reflecting on collective experiences. 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Drop in when it works for you, and when you feel like chatting or listening to others.
