Mental Health: "It's about all of us"

Bermuda Mental Health Forum

Congratulations to BC Counsellor, Kennita Perry who helped to coordinate and also serve on a community panel discussion, last Thursday, entitled, “Cross Cultural Clinical Work Through the Lens of the LGBTQ+ Community”, during the Bermuda Mental Health Foundation’s 2021 virtual conference - “Mental Health: It’s About All of Us. Ms. Perry was instrumental in the creation of The Village on campus a few years ago, a Registered Student Organisation (RSO) created as a ‘safe place’’ for those who identified with and/or supported the LGBTQ+ community. She, along with two BC alumni – Taj Outerbridge and Sophia Tessitore – were featured this past May in a RG article for their pioneering work. The alumni also presented with Ms. Perry at last week’s conference. Director of the Counselling and Career Centre, Nikkita Scott introduced the session on Thursday, which she described as “robust”. Conference participants hailed the virtual conference as “vitally important … as the island looks to progress as an inclusive society…” Bermuda College was also commended for “leading the way” in this regard.
