UW Multicultural Graduate Network Mental Health Panel & Mixer
October 9, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Graduate students working with the Multicultural Graduate Network have organized an event on Wednesday, Oct. 9 from 4:00-6:30pm at Union South to promote mental health. If you have struggled with mental health as a graduate student, you certainly aren’t alone. Graduate students are three times more likely to experience depression and anxiety than the U.S. population. Next week, the Multicultural Graduate Network (MGN) and Graduates and Professionals with Disabilities (GPSD) Initiative will be facilitating discussion on the topic of mental health through a graduate student panel and mixer to follow. Graduate students will be speaking on the panel about their personal struggles. The goal is to answer questions, address concerns and create a safe space for students to connect and find support among peers facing similar challenges. The panel will be followed by a mixer and refreshments will be provided. RSVP to the Mental Health Panel & Mixer.
