Black Student Support and Healing Space

The goal of this group is to create space for Black students to feel comfortable talking about Black experiences surrounding racism in a group setting. We will encourage the sharing of personal stories of racism and cultivate healing.

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.
