Mental Wellness During the Pandemic: Engage in an interactive dialogue to develop an awareness of the individual, collective and social impact of the Pandemic in their lived experiences. Students will share and learn strategies from facilitators, Ebony Smalls LMSW and Carl Jackman LMSW on how they and their communities can move forward now and into the future of post-quarantine life.
Three key outcomes students will gain from this session.
