Providing access to mental health services for undocumented Latinx college students.
Project: Providing access to mental health services for undocumented Latinx college students.
Inspiration: I have personally seen and experienced the lack of access Latinx communities have towards mental health services. But once I got to college I realized that undocumented Latinx college students face different struggles that affect their mental health differently. This becomes a large issue when they don’t have the resources to take care of their mental health. I was inspired to create my Puksta project because I saw that my community was lacking an important resource.
Future Plans: I hope to create and provide mental health services that are more culturally aware for undocumented students on campus and therefore, improve the healths of undocumented Latinx students.
