#ThisIsAmerica: Anti-Racism, Mental Health and the Asian Community

Our country has seen a tragic rise in hate crimes and racism towards the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. With May being Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and Mental Health Awareness Month, this program will address the intersection of race and mental health in the AAPI community. We will acknowledge the injustices facing the AAPI community, as well as celebrate individuals making an impact in the mental health space. This panel of experts will share their insights on how to best take care of yourself and your emotional well-being as well as teach strategies on how to work through the trauma that many in the AAPI community face due to recent events in our country.

Please RSVP by Tuesday, May 18th, 2021.
