For this episode we spoke to Lynn Panepinto, a licensed social worker in Austin, Texas. We drank iced lemon balm tea with pineapple and passion fruit, and talked about the nuances of Latinx identity, the concept of cultural distance, and her research entitled "Mapping the Landscape: Intervention Services for Child Sexual Abuse in Lima, Peru."
For this episode we spoke with Rocio Villalobos, a community advocate currently working with young people, leadership, and access to nature. We drank Quit Yer Belly Achin' tea, a blend of marshmallow root, cinnamon, chamomile flowers, scullcap, slippery elm root, and ginger, and talked about sustainable activism, mental health and the outdoors, and the importance of engaging youth.
This is the Latinx Mental Health Podcast where we talk to therapists, researchers, artists, activists, and students about their experiences in the intersections of mental health and Latinx identity. In each interview we aim to connect through our voices, our struggles, and our triumphs as we sample a different herbal tea just like abuela used to make.
