A safe space to discuss and reflect with Carmen Cruz, LICSW.

The group will focus on holding space to build and share meditative practices and self-care techniques that foster healing for students of color. Participants will practice cognitive mindfulness-based stress reduction skills to reduce anxiety, depression, fear, worry, and panic. Given that the emphasis of the group is holistic, intentional wellness, participants will experience additional tools such as texts to digest the affirmation and promotion of self-love, joy and positivity; tools that are rooted in countering the racial injustice narratives we experience in our everyday realities.


The group meets every Tuesday 5-6:30pm EST. Open to all registered Harvard students (undergraduates and graduates) who have paid the 2023-2024 Student Health Fee. (Check dates for semester schedule.)


If you are interested, please email the group leader directly and include your Student ID number, which allows CAMHS to securely message the workshop/group zoom link. Contact Carmen Cruz, LICSW ccruz@huhs.harvard.edu for questions and referrals.
