About the Event:
BMI’s March event will feature a panel of Black mental health and health professionals and students to talk about an array of health and mental health issues through the Black male experience and perspective. This event is designed to be informative as well as interactive and a safe space from participants to ask questions.
Food and drinks will be provided.
About the Black Male Initiative:
Of the Canadian provinces, British Columbia has the lowest representation of the Black population in Canada, and it is often difficult for Black male students in particular to access the support they need.
The Black Male Initiative is designed to support UBC male students who self-identify as Black. It provides a confidential space on campus for members to connect to other Black male students, where they can share their lived experiences with one another and receive both peer and mentor support.
The program strives to support all Black male students during their time at UBC with the following:
- Regular gatherings for authentic group conversations
- Social events/ speakers
- Mentorship opportunities
- Networking/Community building
- Safe space for Black male students only
