The Current State of Mental Health for Asians and Pacific Islanders in America | Leadership Education for Asian Pacifics (LEAP)
March 16, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
In partnership with CVS Health, this session will explore what mental health currently looks like for Asians and Pacific Islanders in America. Join Tracy Chin, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, as we cover the definition of ‘mental health’, how Asian and Pacific Islanders Americans can increase their access to mental health services, and various factors and events that impact mental health including the Model Minority Myth and how Asian hate has affected our community and mental wellbeing.
LEAP Connect was created to allow a safe space for Asian and Pacific Islanders (APIs) to engage in necessary and meaningful dialogues around challenges facing our communities. These monthly sessions serve as opportunities for individuals to learn, share experiences and hear alternative perspectives to create more understanding and unity within APIs and our allies.
