On April 14 - 15, 2023, join the National Asian American Pacific Islander Mental Health Association (NAAPIMHA) and special guests at Redefining Mental Health: Centering Voices of AANHPI Youth and People with Lived Experience, a two-day convening dedicated to centering the voices of Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) youth and people with lived experience and redefining mental health and well-being in the AANHPI community. The conference will include plenaries, interactive workshops, advocacy, and opportunities for art, wellness, and connection.

The National Asian American Pacific Islander Mental Health Association (NAAPIMHA) is a nonprofit organization committed to promoting the mental health and well-being of Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) communities.
NAAPIMHA strengthens the capacity of AANHPI communities, providers and AANHPI serving behavioral health organizations to improve the mental health and well-being of AANHPI communities. The long-term organizational goal is achieved by addressing the mental health needs of all age groups with a particular focus on youth and people with lived experience. This includes suicide prevention, empowering individuals with lived experience and improving access to high quality and affordable mental health services that addresses the impact of culture and language.
Since 2001, NAAPIMHA has provided a wealth of resources to support those efforts, including: 1) coalition building, collaboration, and liaison with key organizations, agencies, and systems, 2) AANHPI-specific mental health programming, 3) meetings and training, and 4) technical assistance consultation and 5) policy & advocacy efforts.
