Immigrants Rising-Mental Health Connector

Immigrants Rising’s Mental Health Connector provides undocumented young people with psychological support, allowing you to access your strengths and resiliency in order to achieve your personal goals and healing.
Experienced and culturally responsive mental health therapists volunteer to provide free and completely confidential services, tailored to meet the needs of each individual. Therapists receive ongoing peer consultation and training to better understand the unique experiences of undocumented young people.
All undocumented young people who reside in California and are comfortable conversing in English are eligible for our service.

Immigrants Rising’s Virtual Wellness Gatherings

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.

Governor Newsom recently announced that everyone who receives the CalEITC will also get an additional $600, as part of a new state stimulus for COVID-19 relief.
