Asian Mental Health
It is estimated that 2.9 million Asians in America deal with mental health conditions, yet Asian Americans are 3 times less likely to seek help vs. White Americans due to various barriers. When Asian Americans do receive help, they have a high recovery rate.
For Asian women, mental health is even more acute as we juggle multiple roles in our lives. And we are becoming more concerned about the mental health of our Asian American youth.
At MyAsianVoice, we are making it easier to understand and access information with Dr. Annie S. Li*.
Dr. Annie has devoted her career focusing on the needs of Asian American mental health. She is the co-founder and co-chair of the Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) Asian Caucus and a board-certified expert on Asian American youth mental health educating our government and the public.
