    Mental Health Resources:

    Culturally Competent Mental Health Resources for Black Students:

    As the National Alliance on Mental Illness notes, “mental health conditions do not discriminate based on race, color, gender or identity. Anyone can experience the challenges of mental illness regardless of their background. However, your concerns or experiences and how you understand and cope with these conditions may be different”. Although anyone can develop a mental health problem, those of marginalized groups sometimes experience more severe forms of mental health conditions due to unmet needs and other barriers.

    That being said, here are just a few resources geared towards helping Black students receive access to culturally competent mental health care:
