"Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare." -- Audre Lorde

Join USC Academic Culture Assembly, USC APASA, Black Student Assembly at USC, USC ISA, USC Latina/o Student Assembly, Queer and Ally Student Assembly, and USC Women's Student Assembly for this self-care workshop that will conclude the Behind the Mask: Intersections of Mental Health series!

The purpose of this event is to provide a safe space for marginalized students to come together and support one another in healing from the daily violence and oppression experienced attending a Predominantly White Institution (PWI). Self-care is important for everyone but is especially necessary and difficult for marginalized student communities, where mental health is stigmatized and threatened regularly on the basis of identities.

This event will serve to remind those students that they are important as well, and that taking time for themselves is not selfish, but an act of resistance. Come to hear from others, share your own experience, and discuss methods that you use to care for yourself!
