Tea & ConversASIAN about Mental Health and Self-Care
Hosted by AAPI Cultural Center and Clinical Counseling Services
May is not only Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month but also Mental Health Awareness Month. While AAPI groups celebrate their identities and contributions to the success and prosperity of our country, we also recognize the challenges they face, including the recent rise in anti-Asian crime. We took this opportunity to discuss mental health, personal growth, and professional development with our AAPI community at ACC. Our Riverbat counselors, Janie Wang, Sharon Goh, and Henry Tsai, led an interactive presentation and conversation with our community about mental health, coping strategies, and resources available for your own self-care. Thank you everyone for participating in this fun and healthful event!

Where: Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation Center, ACC-Highland Campus, Building 4000 (Room 4.2205)
