Immigrants Rising’s Virtual Wellness Gatherings help undocumented young people stay grounded and connected to one another.

Led by Liliana Campos, Immigrants Rising’s Mental Health Advocate, these virtual gatherings convene experienced facilitators—psychologists, coaches, traditional healers—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. We hope these virtual sessions and tools can support participants’ long-term resilience and coping strategies.
