Actively supporting DACA recipients and psychologists

Thursday, July 30, 2020 - 3:45pm

In partnership with National Latinx Psychological Association (NLPA), APA’s Div. 17 (Society of Counseling Psychology), Lehigh University's College of Education, FWD.us, Informed Immigrant, United We Dream (UWD) and Immigrants Rising, the American Psychological Association (APA) sponsored a three-part webinar series on mental health services for immigrants, tailored to recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and psychologists serving the DACA community.

APA Advocacy also successfully secured the participation of Rep. Raul Ruiz (D-Calif.), who is a champion for immigrants and their mental health. He provided opening remarks about psychologists and the importance of their work with immigrants. APA will continue its long-standing advocacy for immigrants and their mental health needs.
