The panelists will consist of Professor Greg Buchanan, ELL Program Manager Rosamaria Laursen, and an advocate from the Immigrant Youth Justice League.Panelists will introduce their knowledge on the topic of mental health in the undocumented community as well as any personal experiences. Following this, the audience will be given the opportunity to ask the panelists questions.
