Speaking Engagements

Format and Style

I enjoy speaking to large and small groups as a presenter, facilitator or panelist. For years, I have given presentation and training in my corporate role and I love that I can bring those skills on topics on mental health, wellness, healing and growth. 

Topics I Enjoy


  • Asian American Mental Health and Wellness
  • De-mystifying Therapy for Asian Americans
  • Asian Resilience: The Good, The Bad, and The What's Possible!  
  • Asian Moms, Freud, and Your Career. What's the Connection?

November 2018: Lewis & Clark Ray Warren Symposium on Race and Ethnic Studies

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.
