DOLAPO ONIDARE

I am a Registered Social Worker and a Master of Social Work candidate from Wilfrid Laurier University, Ontario.​ I'm passionate about talking and relating with people without judgment & with lots of empathy. 

 

Due to my lived experience of mental health concerns and oppression of various levels, I am passionate about helping people grow in many aspects of their lives.

I care deeply about social issues and how they impact vulnerable people such as children, immigrants/refugees, women, BIPOC, LGBTQ2S+, poverty, the homeless, the oppressed, and those incarcerated.

 

I enjoy working with people, especially Black Indigenous Persons of Colour (BIPOC), on the topic of mental health/illness and its intersectionality with gender, race, sexuality, age, disability, immigration/socio-economic status, and oppression.
