    Caring for Our Mental Health While Living Abroad

    Join us for a discussion on the mental health issues commonly faced when loving abroad with Caitlan Siegenthaler, MA, LPC, NCC.

    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.

    This event is a collaboration between MeWell Community and the Global Youth Caucus at Democrats Abroad.
