Black Student Wellness

At CWC We care about UF's Black Students mental health

CWC Resources & Services


At CWC, we value diversity and recognize the unique challenges students may face based on one’s race, ethnicity, color, worldview (religion, spirituality, and other values), age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, size, marital status, national origin, political opinions or affiliations, genetic information, veteran status, and the many other ways one might identify. We strive to create a supportive and empowering environment that is inclusive of all students.

Kognito Training: Help a Friend

  • 30 min online training– Students learn about the signs of psychological distress, learn effective techniques in approaching a peer who has shown signs of distress, and through a simulation learn how to check-in with a friend, educate them about available support services and encourage them to make a consultation.

Coping With Hatred

When faced with social injustices, controversial speakers or hate messages, it may be difficult to know how to cope and what to do. Yet, we all have the power to counteract hate. Speaking up and acting in ways that are aligned with your values can take many different forms. And each step counts; small acts of self-care and ♥ LOVE can make a big difference. Allow your voice to be heard !
