Join us for a discussion on the mental health issues commonly faced when living abroad with Caitlan Siegenthaler, MA, LPC, NCC and Blaine Nomura, a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Washington.
Our team of mental health professionals has experience working with adults and young people both in the US and in Switzerland, and will be providing insight into their own work helping Americans both at home and abroad to address the feelings of loneliness, isolation, culture shock, and other obstacles that come with starting a new life in a new place. After presenting some background information on their professional histories and on these themes, we will be holding a Q&A session with the audience.

Youth Caucus Co-Liaison, Switzerland
Head of Young Democrats of Switzerland
In order to maintain a successful and functional democracy, every of-age citizen needs to be able to contribute their unique voice and lived experience to its development. Democrats at home and abroad believe in voting rights, science-based solutions, and the equity and fair treatment of all human beings -- and that's what I believe in and fight for, too.
