Hey guys! The first few weeks of the semester are always a whirlwind, but now that it’s finally getting into a groove, I’ve got time to update the blog! We’ve got two different events on campus this week you may want to check out if you can:
Wednesday, September 25th “Movies for Mental Health (M4MH)” are 2-hour workshops on college and university campuses that focus on empowering young adults, educators, health professionals and community members to gain a better understanding of mental health within their environment. Knowing that art speaks the language of our interior worlds, we harness film to engage with young people on the vital topic of mental health, inspiring and empowering them to tell their own stories and access resources available to them.

The theme for 2019 is “Hispanic Americans: A History of Serving Our Nation.” Please join Professor Ricardo Catón, members of Latinos Unidos, and the UNITE staff for a program that highlights the historical and ongoing roles of Hispanic/Latinx Americans and the issues that concern the Hispanic/Latinx community in the United States.
