A steady flow of diverse immigrant populations has always influenced the demographic landscape of the U.S. In the 1990s immigration increased 57% and in the past decade the U.S. witnessed a 21% increase. According to the current U.S. census approximately 12% of the U.S. population is foreign born. In recent years, political and social attitudes have contributed to the challenges and experiences of immigrant groups that have added to social, political, and economic problems which in turn have led to growing discrimination and mental health concerns. The purpose of this LI is to examine the unique challenges immigrants face, and examine the ways in which counselors can serve the needs of this diverse and growing population.
