Title: Declutter the Mind: A Discussion on Constructive Ways of Unpacking Frustrations in the Office and Abroad as a Professional of Color  

 

Description: 

Have you ever felt like screaming in your office or do you ever feel the need to break out? Sometimes we don't have that person or space as professionals of color to unpack how we feel, so come talk to us. This comprehensive community discussion will explore the historical attitudes towards mental health in Black/POC spaces and - considering both the professional and student -centered perspective- we will share tips for managing frustrations in the office and suggestions for supporting the mental health and safety of students of color abroad.
