Event description: 
Join Mind Matters for our first-ever Race and Mental Health student panel, featuring five Yale student panelists who look will share their stories of mental illness and racial identity. Their experiences will also touch on the impacts of class, gender, and socioeconomic status on mental health. 

This will be the perfect event for anybody who is even vaguely interested in how mental illness stigma and treatment stigma vary in different communities or ideas surrounding what it means (or in some cases, if it is even possible) to be “healthy” or “well” in the face of racism, xenophobia and prejudice both on and off-campus. Each speaker will briefly share their experiences and thoughts on the topic, and Q&A will follow. We sincerely hope to see you there!

Warning: there may be discussion of disordered eating, body shaming, suicidality, self harm and will certainly be lengthy descriptions of personal mental illness experience
