MENTAL HEALTH MONDAYS ON INSTAGRAM
Brittney invites the TN Tech Campus Community to watch and / or join in the conversation as they offer coping strategies and information for mental well-being weekly on Instagram @TNTechCounsel every Monday Morning starting in October 2023. This fall she will focus on mindfulness based stress reduction techniques and self-care.
Many LGBTQI+ individuals experience negative mental health issues due to the prejudice and other biases they face, even the act of coming out is surrounded by fear for many. In fact, research suggests that queer people experience mental health conditions at a rate almost 3 times higher than the general population.
Without mental health we cannot be healthy. It is our hope that LGBTQI+ individuals find this support group to be a safe outlet for them to discuss these challenges and find a sense of community online. We want LGBTQI+ students at Tech to not just make it through their time here, but to flourish.
This group is open to anyone who identifies anywhere on the LGBTQI+ spectrum, including those who don’t know what that means for them! All students are welcome to come and be accepted as themselves.
