Presentation: A discussion about mental heath and resettlement barriers featuring Wais Khairandesh, Independent Consultant & Mental Health Therapist and Senior Staff Counselor at Arizona State University.

Wais is currently certified as a Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapist as well as a Child and Adolescent Trauma Professional (CATP). Wais most recently spent several months providing intensive crisis therapy to Afghan Evacuees in the U.S. Military base in Virginia.
