Looking after yourself as a BAME student online

The Wellbeing Team’s BAME Assistant, Hope, has created a resource discussing how to manage your wellbeing as a BAME student encountering media content of racism and discrimination online. In this time of digital saturation, this resource offers suggestions on self-care and support specific to those in BAME communities. If you have any questions or want more information about the work Hope is doing, you can contact Hope by emailing hope.leslie@manchester.ac.uk
