A RESOURCE FOR THOSE ON THE FRONT LINES
This Directory is an offering to the migrant rights movement. It is a directory of culturally grounded, Latinx mental health practitioners who believe in the human right and dignity of Latinx communities and Latinx migrant communities across the United States.
These coordinated, large-scale assaults can devastate the spirits, livelihoods, and wellbeing of these communities, leaving deep emotional, physical, spiritual, and political wounds. We form this network as an affirmation of our humanity, our worthiness, our power, and all our people’s beauty. We declare that our future is bright and self-determined.

PEER SUPPORT TEAM
WHO WE ARE?
The LTAN Peer Support Team is a group of community members with mental health training who assist people on the frontlines in need of guidance, conversation, emotional support, and navigating community grief.
Peer support is given by individuals who use their lived experiences to assist people in their journeys using the following principles:
Peer supporters provide emotional support and mentoring to individuals inside the migrant community and within its movement leadership
Relationships are based on the principles of mutual respect, empathy, shared and/or similar experiences, egalitarianism, reciprocity and the belief in social justice
Peer supporters are open. They share their lived experiences for the benefit of the other person and peer supporters are willing to listen without judgement
Peer support focuses on understanding one others’ strengths and challenges and being willing to meet each other where they are
