Governor Inslee has proclaimed July 2016 as Mental Health Awareness in Communities of Color Month.
The Pacific Islander Health Board and the Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs are encouraging efforts to promote mental health awareness in Asian and Pacific Islander Communities. Mental health is essential to overall well-being, yet research shows that APIs are less likely to seek help for mental health issues due to social stigma, linguistic and cultural disconnects, and lack of access to health care. We believe that reducing the stigma around mental health issues is key in increasing the number of APIs who seek treatment.
Join us for a Community Conversation to destigmatize mental health in our communities and learn how to encourage your loved ones to seek treatment.
