Cultural Barriers to Optimal Mental Health

Event held by NAMI – National Alliance on Mental Illness on 05/10/2021:

National Alliance on Mental Illnesses (NAMI) UFCOM and the Class of 2024 Diversity Liaisons with the Office for Diversity and Healthy Equity presented a student panel on “Cultural Barriers to Optimal Mental Health”. The discussion was moderated by our very own Dr. Jacobs-Elliot and was centered on the challenges that UFCOM students face in seeking and accessing mental health resources. It was a valuable discussion on how to support those with mental illness and hear from our fellow colleagues about their mental health journeys!
