BIPOC Support Group Gathering


This gathering aims to hold space for learners from the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences who identity as Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC). You are invited to reflect and share on the inner workings of racial trauma, micro-aggressions, and the impact of these experiences on well-being. Through communal and anonymous writing, perspectives on building collective and personal care will be shared.

This event will be facilitated by Melissa-Anne Cobbler, MSW. Melissa is a licensed social worker with over a decade of work experience in community, mental health and university settings. Born and based in Montréal, Québec, her work clinically and creatively, connects to principles of narrative therapy and intersectionality to support clients in cultivating their own story. As a Black cis-woman of Caribbean parentage, her practice welcomes all and often extends support to individuals who identify with the QTBIPOC (queer/trans/black/indigenous, and people of colour) community. She works out of McGill University (Local Wellness Advisor for the Faculty of Science) and the Lighthouse Counselling Centre.
