Yale needs to hire more mental health counselors of color. I think it’s important for everybody to feel as comfortable as possible when they’re seeking out mental health counseling, and for many students that includes seeing their identities represented in the counseling relationship. Especially seeing as how the overwhelming majority of campus administrators are white, it’s important to have counselors of color so that students have options in seeking support.
