Mental Health & BIPOC Student Panel

October 4, 2021 @ 6:30 pm 8:00 pm


Bilingual psychotherapist born and raised in Puerto Rico. Dr. Lopez Cruz has a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Carlos Albizu University in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Additionally, she has previously worked in school settings providing psychoeducational workshops to teachers and parents. Her clinical and research interests include grief, developmental trauma and the interaction between behavior and technology.

Join us as Dr. Lopez Cruz discusses the needs, barriers, strengths, and experiences of the BIPOC community and the ways which identity and privilege intersect with mental health and accessing resources.

Following Dr. Lopez Cruz, Springfield College students will join a panel discussion moderated by Clinical Coordinator & Diversity Specialist, Tiffany Benford, discussing the experiences/challenges/wins that BIPOC students have had when navigating mental health.
