The California Community Colleges’ Chancellor’s Office and the Foundation for California Community Colleges are hosting an online free webinar called “Mental Health: Supporting Undocumented Students” on Wednesday May 17, 2023 from 10am to 11am PT. “This webinar will introduce various perspectives and promising practices currently used to respond to undocumented students’ unique mental health needs.”
From the organizers of the webinar: “California Community Colleges have been and will continue to explore how to meet students’ health and wellness needs. The Chancellor’s Office and the Foundation for California Community Colleges work in partnership with other state agencies on early intervention initiatives, faculty and staff training, suicide prevention, and peer-to-peer programs. The Vision for Success encourages us to provide students with robust and varied support to meet them where they are. For undocumented communities, mental health resources are vital. This webinar will introduce various perspectives and promising practices currently used to respond to undocumented students’ unique mental health needs.”
