Detroit Wayne Mental Health Authority and MI-AIMH – Early Childhood Learning Series

When Immigration Policies Frighten Families: Early Childhood Services Can Help

As immigration enforcement ramps up, so rises the fear of undocumented parents about the fate of their children.  There are about 6 million U.S. citizen children with at least one parent who is in the country illegally.  Research shows that harsh immigration enforcement policies have consistently undermined the health, economic security and overall wellbeing of children of immigrant families.  Join us, as we explore with a panel of infant mental health clinicians, who are working with families with immigration policy fears, to discuss best practices.  In addition, we will have an immigration lawyer join us to discuss the legal implications of these policies for families with young children.  The training will include case examples to illustrate the work with families affected by these policies.
