DESCRIBE THE EVENT, TRY TO INCLUDE HOW IT RELATES TO YOUR MISSION OR VALUES
Mental health maladies in the Asian American and Pacific Islander American community are shunned to the extent that most immigrant families do not accept them as real. As a result, many first generation and immigrant children of these families suffer from illnesses such as depression, anxiety, and others related to stress. Most of the time, they are unaware of their own conditions and thus do not receive the help they desperately need. Starting this year, we are excited to have geared our focus toward mental health and wellness, in particularly Asian Pacific Islander (API) communities. We want to raise awareness about the stigma that have harmed so many innocent lives, lives that would have been saved if people had received the help they needed from family, friends, and healthcare professionals. We believe that a Mental Health conference in May (Mental Health Month) would be a perfect opportunity for to raise awareness and to inform and educate our peers about the different aspects of mental health and how it intersects with gender, race, and socioeconomic class. We have named the conference Burdens and Barriers: Breaking (API) Mental Health Stigma. We will be welcoming Emily Wu Truong, an award-winning advocate for mental health awareness in particularly API communities, as our keynote speaker. Additionally, we have invited a number of highly-esteemed doctors to host workshops on the various intersectional topics that have to do with mental health.
