There is stigma in all communities around mental health, wellness, and being in therapy. Asian Americans don't need to feel added shame that we have stigma around this! And, there are nuanced cultural reasons for the stigma in Asian communities.
1. Avoidance of shame
2. Prioritizing the family and the collective
3. Religious and spiritual beliefs
4. Incongruence between identity and mental health condition and needs
5. Lack of information or misinformation
