Some 160 people attend webinar on trauma and mental health in immigrant and refugee communities
As part of the Bold Idea initiative, Princeton AlumniCorps and Appleseed hosted a webinar presentation and Q & A on the topic of trauma and mental health in immigrant and refugee communities. One-hundred and sixty viewers from all over the United States tuned in to listen and learn from Dr. Usha Tummala-Narra and Dr. Maria Nardone about the various aspects of trauma, including the effects of the current political climate on mental wellness and the generational impact of chronic stress on immigrant families.
The Bold Idea initiative seeks to bring together practitioners, academics, policymakers, and funders from both within and beyond the AlumniCorps network for dialogue and action over a three-year period. The current iteration of the Bold Idea is a two-year pilot focusing on immigration issues. AlumniCorps, in partnership with Appleseed, a network of 17 public interest centers in the United States and Mexico, received a grant from the Hewlett Foundation to promote network-based collaboration focused on the issues facing immigrants and refugees.
