Episode 9 – Supporting 2SLGBTQ+ Students on Campus with Taylah Harris-Mungo and Adanyi Phillip
In this episode, CICMH’s Bilingual Knowledge and Research Lead Taylah Harris-Mungo is joined by Adanyi Phillip, a support worker and queer youth advocate, to discuss the well-being of 2SLGBTQ+ students on campus and the ways youth are finding supports. They’ll also highlight the challenges faced by international students and what post-secondary institutions can learn from community organizations to better support the mental health of queer students on their campuses.
This episode of the Mental Health on Campus podcast is one piece of CICMH’s Invisible Intersections: Supporting 2SLGBTQ+ Students on Campus toolkit project. The toolkit addresses the ways in which students may be faced with challenges and barriers on campus due to their queer identity, how those challenges may be invisible to those in positions of support and provides recommendations to address those barriers.
