    Black Pre-Med society seeks to empower

Black communities by shedding a light on

nuanced perspectives regarding mental
health. Mental health discussions need to be

as diverse and multifaceted as the people it

affects. By addressing mental issues as they

are informed by Black experiences, we hope to

“Shatter the Silence” on this pressing issue

that affects so many. This conference is open

to all members of the Princeton community

and beyond in the hopes that we can all learn

and understand how mental health access,

outcomes, stressors, barriers, and treatments

differ across racial and socioeconomic lines.

Please join Princeton’s Black Pre-Medical

Society at our inaugural conference,

“Shattering the Silence."
