The goal of our outreach efforts is de-stigmatize and de-mystify therapy in Asian communities. The more information people have about what therapy is and how therapy works, the more accessible it becomes.
We want to help Asian Americans utilize counseling and therapy in much higher numbers, not only in severe mental health cases and not only as the last resort.
We host events in our communities and welcome opportunities to speak at your school and organizations.
Yin J. Li, LMFT hosted workshop on Asian American Mental Health and Wellness
Yin J. Li, LMFT as a panelist on session, Mental Health is Not Just for White People.
What does mental health look like for people of color? In what ways have mental health care systems focused on white people, and what have been the consequences? This panel will raise questions about the cultural exclusivity of “mental health,” asking who has access to a doctor’s diagnosis or to an education about mental illness. We will also examine how racism affects mental health treatment and produces higher rates of medical conditions that generate significant psychological challenges. Additionally, this panel will explore responses within communities of color to develop transformative practices and new resources.
