About the Conference

This conference will explore the socio-historical and cultural factors that impact the mental health and wellness of women and girls of color. Speakers will address areas pertaining to the intersectional lives of Black and Latina women and girls, while discussing protective factors and resources available and needed to increase overall health and well-being. This session will contribute to a discussion about how the narratives of women and girls of color can inform school, community, and collegiate-based wellness work on race, gender, and mental health.
