About the event
Join the National Asian American Pacific Islander Mental Health Association in an information session on how you can get your city or state to recognize May 10th, 2023 as Asian American, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Mental Health Day!
Following the rise in anti-Asian racism and violence arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is crucial to celebrate and center the mental health and wellbeing of AANHPI communities nationwide. Having a national movement to raise awareness around mental health will do more than just educating our communities and the general public about AANHPI mental health. It is designed to make meaningful change by allocating resources to strengthen AANHPI serving behavioral health organizations, to support the development, implementation and evaluation of services, and intervention strategies that reflect the cultural and language needs of the community and to provide resources to engage the community in creating new ways of healing.
