How we do it.
We mobilize communities around mental health awareness and highlight its intersectionality with cross-cultural issues in social justice.
We educate our community with evidence-based information about mental health challenges, treatments, and resources.
Why we do it.
The more voices we amplify, the more lives we can save.
Everyday, we hear stories of the stigma around mental health in the South Asian community, and the members of our community pay the price. South Asian Americans have some of the lowest rates of utilizing mental health services, according to the Asian and Pacific Islander American Health Forum. The more we mobilize around mental health, the more we educate our community, and the more voices we amplify, the more lives we can save.
