COVID-19 has exacerbated inequities experienced by many of our communities of color. Reports show the Latinx population in the U.S continues to lack access to adequate culturally-effective mental health care. Our Latinx community has experienced pandemic-related stressors, depression, and overall worsening mental health conditions. This therapy group will provide a confidential, safe space for our Latinx staff and faculty community to process, heal, connect, and find strength as a collective.

This six-week confidential therapy group will meet weekly between June 3rd to July 8th. Group members will need to attend an initial brief meeting with an ASAP psychologist and commit to attending all group sessions This is a closed group, so space is limited.
