What are Healing & Empowerment Gatherings?
Healing and Empowerment Gatherings provide a service to students of communities directly affected by oppression-based traumatic events. These workshops bring awareness of the impact of oppressive experiences on mental health and provide coping strategies for students experiencing culturally based trauma. Additionally, Healing and Empowerment Gatherings seek to provide additional resources to students needing higher levels of care by offering referrals to CAPS, referrals to community-based providers & resources and/or linkage to campus partners.
There are no gatherings scheduled at this time.
