Undocumented Latina women experience barriers such as stigma and language barriers that deter them from seeking mental health services. The purpose of this project was to develop a program that aims to decrease depressive symptoms, improve psychological well being, and increase coping through an 8 week support group for undocumented Latina women in their native language. This group utilizes essential components of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and promotoras to help the women increase their support and coping. The group members will be given referrals to services in the community to increase community support and linkage to services. This group will be held at the Center for Latino Community Health Evaluation and Leadership Training's Long Beach Center. The Annenberg Foundation was the funder that was selected as a potential funder for this program. The actual grant submission or funding of the grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
