My name is Patricia Garcia, a second-year master’s student in the Counseling Psychology program at Morgridge College of Education. I am the 2019-2020 CCSEL Student Fellow on Health Disparities. My academic interests include Diversity, Social Justice and a specialization in Substance use counseling. I am also honored to be an APA Minority Fellow in the Service for Transition Age Youth (STAY) program which focuses on working with transitional aged youth (16 to 25 years old) and their families. As a bilingual individual (Spanish), I am interested in helping Hispanic communities where language becomes a barrier for access to physical and mental health services. As well as, advocating to end mental health stigmas present within communities.
