Paige Fern Chan Connects Families Separated at the Border with Mental Health Services

Paige Fern Chan (’12), Executive Director, Southern California at Seneca Family of Agencies, was quoted in an NBC News article regarding the White House’s quashing of a settlement including paid mental health services for migrant families separated at the border and Seneca’s work assisting over 500 reunified migrant families (“White House Killed Deal to Pay for Mental Health Care for Migrant Families Separated at Border,” Nov. 19). “Reunification does not erase the trauma caused by the separation. It is just the first step in the healing process. The need to connect families to services is urgent, because when treatment is delayed, it may exacerbate and compound the trauma of the separation.”
