On Wednesday, March 17, Student Counseling and Psychological Services (SCAPS) will present its full range of programs and resources, giving students a comprehensive look at the support services available on campus.
This particular event is focused on engaging Black and brown students, as SCAPS recognizes the profound impact that current events — namely, racial injustice and COVID-19 health disparities — have had on these communities.
Specifically, the event will spotlight the ongoing support group for Black and brown students, “Our Voices Matter,” led by graduate students Marquietta Green and Randy LaMons. This group meets virtually at 1 p.m. every Friday and is fully peer-led, with no professional staff members present during the sessions.
Adebayo Onabule, licensed professional counselor and outreach coordinator at SCAPS, will join Green and LaMons for the presentation.
“This event will serve as an opportunity for Black and Brown students to learn about the full range of SCAPS services, and specifically how the Our Voices Matter support group may more precisely meet their mental health needs in these challenging times,” says Onabule.
The presentation will be at noon Wednesday, March 17, in the Jaguar Student Activities Center (JSAC) Hardy Meeting Room. Refreshments will be provided and masks will be required. The event is capped at 20 in-person participants, but students can also join virtually.
