Exploring Opportunities and Challenges in Supporting Young People of Color



Exploring Religion, Spirituality and Mental Health

The Steve Fund is thrilled to host a symposium that will explore the intersectionality of spirituality, religion and mental health among a gathering of wellness advocates who play a role in addressing mental health challenges for students of color and who share mutual goals.

Invitees will include mental health practitioners, religious and spiritual leaders, researchers, and leaders of non-profit and community-based organizations.

Key goals of the symposium include:

  • Raise awareness to pertinent mental health challenges on campus
  • Identify opportunities for new tools and programs that support wellness
  • Foster campus engagement
  • Foster academic research
  • Identify best practices

The symposium will be held November 5, 2019, in Washington, DC in the heart of the famous U Street Corridor at the historic True Reformer Building, a building aligned with social change.
