Recovering from the Grief of Being an Immigrant
In this workshop, participants will learn techniques that can be used to break the stigma of what it means to seek help for mental health, we will share and reflect on the effect of emigrating, “acculturating” to a new country and how such changes can cause conditions that impact mental health—such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, among others. Many of the conditions that immigrants face in this country such as racism, not knowing the language, violence and family connections can be direct causes of these conditions.
