Spaces for Wellness
Date(s) - Friday, February 23, 2018 - Monday, April 23, 2018
Presented by: the Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change
Spaces for Wellness is a collaboration between UIC’s Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change (CCUSC) focused on the themes of identity (e.g. race, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation) and mental health. The communities that our centers support and represent have unique and overlapping histories with mental health, including how they have been stigmatized, harmed, and helped by mental health systems, practitioners, and agencies. The goal of Spaces for Wellness is to build on our anti-oppression spaces of trust to provide platforms for UIC students, faculty, and staff to acknowledge challenges and struggles and identify strategies for personal and community care. Through intersectional and creative programming, the CCUSC are engaging UIC in dynamic ways to support individual, community, and familial well-being and work towards holistic understandings of wellness.
