As IDEAS at UCLA, we recognize that mental health is an important issue, but it is an especially vital one that must be acknowledged and addressed in the AB540 community.
As undocumented youth, it is critical that we utilize methods to provide ourselves with extra strength to deal with the physical, mental, and emotional struggles of being undocumented.
Furthermore, it is important to recognize the identities and struggles of others so that we may overcome our frustrations together. We may be different, but we are all human.
The IDentity Circle within IDEAS at UCLA provides our members with a safe space to essentially vent, take care of one another, and prepare ourselves with the necessary tools to go out into the world and fight against the injustices and oppression our community endures.
