Episode 7 – Anti-oppressive Practice on Campus: Students’ perspectives
This episode of the Mental Health on Campus podcast is one piece of CICMH’s Anti-oppressive Practice toolkit project. The project aims to help those who support students on campus better understand what anti-oppressive practice is, how it can be integrated into their roles and how everyone on campus can contribute to creating a more mentally well campus through anti-oppressive practices.
For this episode, we’re joined by our guests Eunice Oladejo and Paishence Johnston to discuss anti-oppressive practice on campus from a student’s perspective.
