In this episode Ana interviewed fellow co-host Alejandra Spector, community social worker and social justice advocate. We talked about her experience working with asylum seekers at the border, the importance of centering mental health, the vital role that people with disabilities play in social justice spaces, her current work in anti-oppressive teaching, and the importance of creativity and connection as self-care. We drank iced tea with lemon and learned a lot recording our first episode using Zoom.
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.
