Immigrants Rising’s Wellness Support Groups help undocumented people stay grounded and connected to community. All groups are facilitated by mental health professionals and are completely free for undocumented people ages 18+ located anywhere in the U.S. The groups are virtual, non-clinical support groups that meet for approximately 1 hour a week for 6 weeks.
In September, the following support groups will meet:
In this group, we will explore how mindfulness can improve emotional well-being; discuss how people experience stress; learn to identify dysregulation; understand the impact of connecting mind, body, and soul; and explore different types of mindfulness practices. Learn More
In this group, we will discuss the different ways that uncertainty impacts how we show up in our relationships, the personal and professional choices we make, and our overall mental and emotional well-being. The facilitator will also introduce and guide participants through various coping strategies and relaxation techniques. Learn More
