Growing up in a first-generation Latino household, the topic of mental health was often neglected and swept under the rug. She says, “There was always a stigma when discussing mental health. Going to therapy was never an option, and often seen as the ultimate last thing to consider rather than the first.” It wasn’t until Marcela went to college where she finally had numerous resources to openly choose from and further realized just how important mental health education is and how much of a positive impact it can bring to every factor of one’s life.
