Immigrant youth and mental health

Youth and community organizers will join researchers and practitioners for a panel discussion exploring the unique mental health challenges faced by young people whose careers and dreams are thwarted by their immigration status.  It takes place Tuesday, November 1, at 3:30 p.m. at the Adler School of Psychology, 17 N. Dearborn.

Two recent productions of the Local Reporting Initiative deal with aspects of this issue: “Undocumented Youth: Waiting, Dreaming, and Falling Through the Cracks,” by The Gate newspaper, and “Why Are Latina Teens At-Risk for Suicide?” by Latina Voices and Mujeres Latinas.  More at communitynewsproject.org.
