In his program, Pablo shares his story surrounding his own mental health concerns, polysubstance abuse and suicide attempt.  He also discusses the challenges he endured surrounding the norms of Guatemalan and U.S. cultures and assimilation.  Pablo discusses how stigma and a lack of education made seeking help more difficult, but by finally finding a strong network of professionals and loved ones, he was able to grow from being his own worst enemy to a powerful participant in his recovery.  He shares his story to encourage others to seek help, build peer support and to create a healthier sense of community.
