Happy Latinx Hispanic Heritage Month! The Stevenson community is made up of students and families with many different backgrounds and perspectives. Wellness can mean different things across different cultures and students of color may be interested in learning more about accessing mental health support. The Latinx Hispanic Student Association hosted the “Well-being Across Cultures – Virtual Round Table” during the Stevenson StreetFest Wellness Week 2021 and brought together various professionals of color in mental health/wellness fields to answer questions asked by Stevenson students. Click here to watch the webinar.
