'I AM' Series--Cultural Diversity in Mental Health
How often do we look at mental health issues through the lenses of racial, cultural, and gender diversity? What is the influence of culture and gender on the perception and management of mental illness? Panelists from diverse areas of expertise will share their views on the stigmatization of mental health issues in different cultures, the treatment of mental illness among culturally diverse communities, and the importance of cultural competency in mental health care. This session aims to bring cross-cultural perspectives into the discussion on mental illness and enhance participants' understandings about cultural diversity in mental health issues.
This event will be held as part of the monthly "I AM" Identity Awareness and Multiculturalism Workshop Series sponsored by the Cross Cultural Center. The workshop series are constructed to facilitate new levels of consciousness regarding concepts of social identity, privilege, multiculturalism, diversity, and social justice. These sessions move beyond the "celebration" of diversity approach to one grounded in empowering participants to become aware and knowledgeable change agents by providing interactive, engaging, and dynamic experiences.
Date: Wednesday, April 22, 2015
Time: 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Location: Center for Global Citizenship Seminar, Room 124

Study Tip of the Month
Instead of trying to retain new material all at once, try breaking new information into small chunks and reviewing it consistently over a long period of time. This technique is known as "spaced repetition."
Financial Aid Tip of the Month
Looking for scolarship opportunities? Aside from SPS scholarships, local scholarships are often less competitive and will consider criteria beyond GPAs and test scores. Consider doing a simple Google search for St. Louis (or your city) area scholarships.
You can connect with SLU SPS students and alumni via our social networking pages on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and YouTube. Chat with other current students and alumni about your experiences once you add our friends to your network. You may just find a business connection, a wealth of advice or a new study buddy!
