Immigrants Rising’s Mental Health Career Program provides undocumented professionals in California with the career-specific hands-on training, professional development, and mentoring they need to launch their careers in the mental health field. Program participants will receive supervision, training, and mentorship from licensed therapists while gaining hours towards their licensure in California by providing pro-bono mental health services to undocumented individuals.
