Self-Identity and LatinX Culture

Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at 5 p.m. PDT 

Join Student Psychological Services & Chicano Latino Student Services as we discuss the process of creating your Self-Identity in the LatinX culture. We will talk about how family dynamics can impact our mental health  (including how to set boundaries....what?! boundaries with my family?!). We'll also discuss what it means to create our individual identities within a tightknit cultural context.
