Jaqui’s Place

Jacqueline Gomez-Arias

Jacqueline Gomez-Arias (co-founder of LBHS) was a tireless Certified Peer Support Specialist who advocated in the State of Utah for integrated services for mental health, substance use and suicide prevention. She was keenly aware of trauma due to multiple adverse experiences. She was a survivor of suicide attempts and continuously advocated for culturally and linguistically responsive interventions. As part of her recovery, Jacqueline stated:

“Recovery for me has involved the development and “movement” towards new meaning and purpose in my life as I grow beyond the catastrophic effects of immigration, discrimination, oppression, mental illness, substance abuse and poverty. It is a voluntary maintained lifestyle characterized by sobriety, personal health, spiritual growth and citizenship!”
