API Mental Health & Wellness Summit (2/20)

Organizations at the University of Washington will be hosting an Asian and Pacific Islander Mental Health & Wellness Summit on February 20, 2016. The Summit focuses on the question, “How are you doing today?” and challenges people to be more aware of their interactions with others.

The goal of the event is to destigmatize mental health among Asians and Pacific Islanders by sharing personal narratives and building solidarity within our communities. Whether you’ve personally been affected by mental health issues or this is your first time hearing about it, there is hope that students will not only learn how to improve their own mental health and well-being, but that they will also inspire and touch others to do the same.

Attendees will have the opportunity to attend workshops on identity, gender/sexuality, spirituality, intergenerational trauma, and self-care. In addition, community and campus resources will be available throughout the day.

Light refreshments will be provided in the morning, and lunch will include banh mi and vegan spring rolls. Although attendance is free, space is limited, so please register HERE (http://goo.gl/forms/cv6jIPA96V). Priority will be given to undergraduate students in the greater Seattle area, and you must be at least 18 years of age to participate. Please message asuwasc@uw.edu if you have any questions or concerns.
