May 10th is National Asian American, Native Hawaiian, & Pacific Islander Mental Health Day

Our mental health is impacted by all aspects of our lives, yet it is a topic that Asian American, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islanders (AANHPI) seldom talk about. AANHPI Mental Health Day plays a critical role in raising awareness about mental health within the AANHPI community, leveraging resources for our community organizations, developing partnerships, and advocating for policies that increase access to culturally relevant services.

National Resolution Declaring May 10th 
Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Mental Health Day

In 2021, Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27) introduced the first congressional resolution to recognize May 10th as Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Mental Health Day. This resolution calls upon Members of Congress to promote national awareness of mental health issues unique to the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) community and urges State and local health agencies across the nation to improve the quality and availability of mental health services for this population.

This year, the national resolution will be introduced again on May 10th, marking the 3rd anniversary of AANHPI Mental Health Day. Amidst a rise in anti-Asian racism and violence, it is crucial to celebrate and center the mental health and wellbeing of AANHPI communities nationwide.
