Since the 17th century, the United States has opened its borders to immigrants around the world.
People immigrate to the United States for a plethora of reasons, but unfortunately, many of them endure awful traumas before, during, and after immigrating.
Anti-immigration policies implemented throughout history have contributed to the animosity toward immigrants, often unchecked. These deplorable acts of hate and discrimination have a destructive effect on the mental health of immigrants, especially those who have fled from dire domestic conditions.
Everyone deserves access to mental health services, regardless of language or cultural barriers. To honor the life of Pablo Nuñez and to support immigrants in their fight, the Pablo Nuñez Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to two bilingual graduate students who are currently studying to enter the field of mental health services specifically for immigrant relief.
To apply, please write about what you believe to be the greatest barrier keeping immigrants from accessing mental health services and the ways in which you would solve this issue.
