If you are in need of mental, emotional or behavioral support, we can help. We offer four ways to connect to health and wellness resources including individual sessions with therapists and group sessions. The ISRC also recommends services to students from immigrant and refugee backgrounds outside of the University that are available to all students, regardless of immigration status.
Weekly Healing Space
Healing Spaces are weekly affirming spaces that foster community for students with undocumented, DACA, refugee or other immigration statuses. The space is intended for students with DACA, undocumented, refugee status or from mixed-status families. This space is not being held in spring 2022.
Drop-In Spaces with Erica
Mondays, 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Free, confidential support and coaching to help manage the sometimes hectic intersection of being an immigrant and a student at the UA. This 1:1 space is led by Erica Granillo (she/her), a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and member of the UArizona Counseling & Psychological Services team.
Meetups with Marie
Not taking additional students at this time
Individual therapy sessions that center immigrants' identities & well-being. Led by Marie Tanaka (she/her), a doctoral student in the UArizona College of Education's School Psychology program, and under the professional supervision of professors in the program.
