We provide free, confidential mental health services to families who were forcibly separated at the US border. Seneca is a leading national nonprofit and we need your support to continue to help the children and families heal from the trauma this action has caused.
Seneca Family of Agencies, a non-profit mental health agency, is leading Todo Por Mi Familia, a nationwide effort to connect impacted families with mental health assessments and treatment. Over the last two years, Seneca supported the class action lawsuit as a pro bono expert witness and consultant. Seneca is coordinating referrals to local mental health providers for interested families who were impacted by the Government’s policy. All services will be free, confidential, and conducted in the families’ preferred language.
Since March 2020, our team has been working tirelessly to locate families that were separated at the border and connect them with the mental health services they need and deserve. So far, we have connected with over 1,300 families, and linked them to over 540 mental health providers across 39 states. Through our work, we have listened to families share their experiences of separation and have been in awe of their resiliency as they begin to heal. Their stories remind us that reunification alone does not address the trauma. We hope that the stories that aired on NBC, Telemundo, and MSNBC help us to spread the word about our services and encourage families to reach out to us.
