Wellness in Color

As students of color at the University of Michigan, some experiences can cause or worsen stress, anxiety, and isolation. Everyday experiences of racism, discrimination, or just subtly being made to feel “different” or like we don’t belong can cause our academics and social lives to suffer. This negatively impacts our mental wellbeing. Many students of color face the challenge of finding supportive and trusting resources that relate to their mental health experiences. Finding the solution to this lack of support has been a conversation that's been halted on campus for too long. At Wellness in Color, we aim to tackle this challenge by facilitating dialogues to initiate the mental health conversation in our community.



We invite you to join us to talk about how students of color have persevered despite difficult moments at Michigan and how faculty and staff can play a role in creating a learning environment where students of color can thrive.



This student pre-conference is designed and facilitated by U-M students of color as part of the national Young, Gifted, @Risk, and Resilient Conference which aims to promote the mental health and well being among students of color.
