Immigrant Students

As immigrant students return to school amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, many are experiencing increased mental stress and significantly limited support resources. We recognize students from all backgrounds might be feeling these emotions; however, BIPOC students and immigrants are at particular risk because of the inequalities prevalent in today’s society.

We are sharing these stories to amplify the injustices immigrants face in our country, while also highlighting their resilience and how many persevere despite these odds. Everyone deserves access to culturally and linguistically appropriate mental health care.
