What immigration detention did to my mental health.
Graciela Lopez

It is hard for people who do not require immigration status to understand the fears and pain even the process itself can cause. I am a native in my own country but I know people who are working here, paying tax here and trying to make a positive contribution but the system is slow to deal with them and the daily anxiety is damaging to mental health. I hope that the therapy you are now receiving can relieve your PTSD.
