Abstract Background


Speaks Spanish

Dr. Campos was born in Mexico City and crossed the border to the U.S. at the age of seven with her family. She was undocumented for 22 years until obtaining LPR status through a U-Visa in 2016. Liliana is a decolonial healer trained in Clinical Psychology at the University of California, San Francisco, where she provides mental health support to developing health care providers (scientists, physicians, and social justice scientists) as well as facilitates support spaces for identified BIPOC students. She has taught graduate courses in culture and co-founded the mental health connector program at Immigrants Rising. Liliana’s clinical and research interest are at the intersection of social justice, community organizing, and activism trying to understand the mental health effects of anti-immigration policy and racism on immigrant, undocumented, and refugee communities from a Decolonial and Liberation Psychology perspective. Some of her research has focused on examining the mental health outcomes of various types of fear among students who have an undocumented legal status. 


Dr. Campos completed her doctoral internship at UC Davis CAPS, AB540/Undocumented Student Track and was a member of the California Psychological Association Immigrant Task Force. She completed her post-doctoral training at the UC San Francisco Student Health Services. Liliana received the 2020 WebMD Educator Health Hero award for her work over the last 15 years on raising awareness about the impact of immigration status on health.
