Growing Up Latino-

Surviving the emotional roller coaster of adolescence is a double and sometimes triple challenge for Latino/a youth. Culture and tradition complicate universal adolescent issues like anxiety, depression, peer pressure, and relationships. Youth in immigrant families often have difficulty navigating the different worlds of school and the streets, home and family. Family separations, mislabeling/misdiagnosis, and pressure to “be quiet” further complicate the challenges to emotional well- being. Where do young people go to get support? Do counselors and mental health professionals understand cultural factors? Do they even literally speak the same language?
