The global COVID-19 pandemic, unrelenting attacks by the Trump administration, and uncertainty around the Supreme Court decision on DACA are causing undue anxiety in the undocumented community. At Immigrants Rising, we have expanded our mental health offerings to ensure that every undocumented person can access support for their mental and emotional well-being.
Our Mental Health Connector connects undocumented young people with 1:1 psychological support, allowing them to access their strengths and resiliency in order to achieve personal goals and pursue their own paths to healing. Our experienced and culturally responsive mental health therapists volunteer to provide free and completely confidential services, tailored to meet the needs of each individual. All undocumented young people who reside in California and are comfortable conversing in English are eligible for our service. Learn More
Our Virtual Wellness Gatherings help undocumented young people stay grounded and connected to one another. Led by our Mental Health Advocate Liliana Campos, these live gatherings take place on Wednesdays 5-6 PT / 8-9 ET and convene experienced facilitators to guide undocumented young people through educational materials and interactive activities. Liliana also shares resources for participants to check out on their own throughout the week. Learn More
