“Los cambios siempre representan retos. Uno de los mayores retos que nuestra sociedad hispana esta pasando es el de imigrar hacia otro pais por la necesidad de buscar un mejor futuro, tanto para ellos como para su familia.
Un cambio de esta magnitud no es simplemente fisica, es tambien mental y emocional. Dejas tus costumbres, a otros familiares, amigos y cultura por la esperanza de un mejor futuro.

El acoplarse a estos cambios no es tarea facil, sabemos que estos retos pueden ser desgastantes y hasta llegar a afectar tu salud mental. La ansiedad de lo desconcido toma lugar en tu mente y esta puede llegar a manifestarse con sentimientos que posiblemente no habias experimentado antes. El sentimiento de soledad se hace presente y empiezas a dudar de ti y de tus metas. La tristeza, falta de motivacion, horas sin dormir ni comer pueden ser algunas de las senales que necesitas buscar ayuda de un profesional. Para la cultura hispana el buscar ayuda de un consejero puede ser aun un mayor reto del que ya estan pasando, pero como consejera hispana te digo que no estas solo. Hay esperanza y habemos quienes estamos dispuestos y comprometidos a ayudarte. Danos la oportunidad de ayudarte en lo que sabemos no es facil enfrentar solo.”

Changes always represent challenges. One of the biggest challenges that our Hispanic society is going through is to immigrate to another country because of the need to look for a better future, both for them and their families.
A change of this magnitude is not simply physical, it is also mental and emotional. You leave your habits, to other relatives, friends and culture for the hope of a better future.

Joining these changes is not an easy task, we know that these challenges can be debilitating and even affect your mental health. The anxiety of the unconscious takes place in your mind and this can come to manifest itself with feelings that you may not have experienced before. The feeling of loneliness becomes present and you begin to doubt yourself and your goals. The sadness, lack of motivation, hours without sleep or eating may be some of the signals you need to seek help from a professional. For the Hispanic culture, seeking help from a counselor can be even more of a challenge than what is already happening, but as a Hispanic counselor I tell you that you are not alone. There is hope and we have those who are willing and committed to help you. Give us the opportunity to help you in what we know is not easy to face alone.
