Migrating to a different country and growing up undocumented has a major impact on one’s mental health. Many face numerous challenges and obstacles in hopes of a better life. This is the story of an undocumented/ or DACAmented migrant whose struggles pushed her to break the stigma of mental health and create her own organization: Aliento.

Ashley Morales has our story.
