Community Forum: Mental Health, Law, and Immigration
Austen Riggs Center
This forum will bring together experts in the area of child mental health, family law, and healthcare to begin to identify the challenges faced by many immigrant families both nationally and in our local community. How do these challenges affect access to care and the wellbeing of children and families? Each presenter will briefly outline their perspective. We then we will open up the discussion to those attending the forum so that we can share our concerns and our knowledge in order to better assist immigrant families in our community.
