Three Antioch University Clinical Mental Health Counseling faculty presented this year at the 7th annual Black Mental Health Symposium, which took place virtually in September 2022. The mission of the two-day conference is to bring together professionals who wish to increase access to care and improve the overall wellness of the Black community, as well as to work to destigmatize mental illness.

Dr. Kalesha Jenkins: “Self-care for Heroes: Black Motherhood, Mental Health, and the Superwoman Schema.”

Dr. Devona Stalnaker-Shofner: “Applying Critical Race Theory to the Decolonization of Counseling Curriculum and Practice,” and “Counseling While Black: Exploring the Experiences of Black Mental Health Counselors.”
