UWNL provided $20,000 in funding for the “Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) Mental Health Programs and Services” program. The funding is provided under UWNL’s “Healthy People, Strong Communities” focus area. According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, this funding will “…increase the amount of mental health resources available to Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) communities.” “To modify our current programs to tackle the issues specific to these communities for all age groups.”, and, “To assess the current barriers to seeking and receiving supports related to mental health for BIPOC communities.”
