Racial Battle Fatigue and the Lack of Representation in Mental Health Services for Postsecondary Students

Program Dates 
December 2, 2021

Virtual - Many BIPOC students experience racial bias while attending college through racism, discrimination, and microaggressions. Racial Battle Fatigue is a theory that explains how exposure to racial bias can result in detrimental psychological and physiological stress. While many institutions of higher education host a variety of mental health resources, counselors and support staff are rarely racially representative of the students they serve. In this webinar, hear from higher education and mental health experts on how BIPOC students are disproportionately represented in needing mental health supports on campus and how IHEs can better meet their needs. Takes place 3:00 p.m. ET. Learn more about this Hunt Institute program and register here.
