New Americans: A Journey into a healthy mind
April 23, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$25 – $50
Join us as we turn the immigration conversation from a focus on politics to a focus on the health and well-being of immigrants living, working, and strengthening our surrounding communities.
By focusing on mental health in our immigrant communities, this conference will discuss the importance of addressing health and recovery when new Americans are faced with hardship in order to call the United States home. Breakout sessions will be held in Spanish and English and will cover topics such as assimilation, trauma, and transgenerational depression. Keynote speakers Maribel Najera and Norma Alicia Rodriguez will be joining us from Mexico City.
*LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED.
If you or your family are immigrants or immigrant descendants, if you work with immigrants, or if you would like to learn more about mental health in the immigrant community, don’t miss out on this conference!
