Although many colleges and universities continue to affirm the importance of inclusive practices and resources for all students, LGBTQ+ undergraduates remain at a unique ever-increasing risk for mental health problems. Identifying and implementing best evidence-based practices for promoting well-being can mitigate the detrimental effects of individual, institutional, and systemic obstacles that LGBTQ students face. (In Progress): LGBTQ+ College Students and Mental Health Possibilities brings together five scholars and clinicians on the cutting edge of research solutions for LGBTQ+ collegiate communities.
Drs. Francisco Sánchez (University of Missouri), Brett Schofield (Penn State), Kirstin Byrd, and Ryan Miller (UNC-Charlotte) are joined by PhD student Dan Delmonaco (U-M School of Information) and master's student ominira mars (University of San Francisco), with Ashley Woodson (University of Michigan) moderating.
(In Progress) is a series that elevates diversity scholarship in response to crisis. We explore ways that scholars mobilize resources to build reparative research relationships, meet urgent needs in their communities and encourage ethical practices of dissemination. Join us for conversations with our small grant awardees and their collaborators about the need to act now.
