Working with Unaccompanied and Immigrant Minors
Border and immigrant youth experience various types of traumatic events, not only during their journeys but also once they have arrived at their destination, that are related to war or persecution, abuse, trafficking, and violence. These may affect their mental and physical health. If you are working with youth who have found their way to the States without the presence of a caregiver these resources could be beneficial for you.
