FLI Wellness Wednesdays

Wednesdays, March 27 until May 15, 3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Harper Memorial Library, room M311 (take west tower elevator to level “M”)

April 17 and May 15 will feature Music Mindfulness Workshop where we’ll listen to music and lyrics through a mindfulness lens and connect through the role of music in expression, self-care, and uplifting communities. 

This program is for FLI (first generation, lower income, immigrant) students to have free, confidential and informal chats with a UChicago Student Wellness therapist who identifies as a member of the FLI community. No appointment is necessary. 

Do you have questions, such as the following:

  • Do I have to be unwell to seek mental health support?
  • Interested in therapy but find the process overwhelming?
  • Can FLI students with intersecting identities benefit from mental health support or therapy?

Drop in to speak to one of us!
