A safe space for students to share and support each other as they navigate everyday complexities of being an international student, including transition, family dynamics, culture, and independence.
Emphasis is placed on making connections and self-care, particularly given the pandemic, while discussing topics that frequently come up for international students.
Open to FIC and SFU students (undergraduate or graduate) who currently reside in BC. The sessions will be held via Zoom, and participants will be asked to have their video turned on throughout the group.
Participants must be able to self-reflect without becoming easily overwhelmed. Students with pressing mental health concerns should seek alternative help from a mental health professional at HCS.
