Conference explores unique mental health challenges of students of color

Penn and its Counseling and Psychological Services team recently partnered with the Steve Fund for the Young, Gifted & @Risk Conference

Earlier this month, nearly 350 people from at least 25 states gathered at Houston Hall for the Steve Fund’s fourth annual Young, Gifted & @Risk Conference, a partnership with Penn and its Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) team.

The event was the nonprofit’s largest turnout yet, with researchers, faculty, staff, students, family members, and mental health professionals all uniting under one cause: to better understand and address the mental health and emotional well-being of students of color.
