Exploring Asian (AAPI) Mental Health and Identity Group

For individuals identifying as AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islander)

Mondays 4:30-6pm, biweekly via Google Meet

Currently enrolling, will start when sufficient enrollment is reached.

Over the past few years, there has been a growing visibility of AAPIs (Asian American Pacific Islanders) in social and political media, bringing forward more discussions of "Asian" mental health and identity. This processing group hopes to create a safe space for participants to share and reflect on their lived experiences and connect around differences in racialization and cultural narratives.

 

Participants are encouraged each session to give and receive support for their current experiences; some sessions may include discussion of, but are not limited to: AAPI Hate, Model Minority Myth, Biculturalism (e.g. Asian and American cultural values and differences), Gratitude and Shame and more. If you identify as AAPI and are interested in exploring and gaining support for your thoughts and feelings on Asian mental health and identity, please consider joining this group.

 

This is a long-term bi-weekly support group. As the goal of this group is to build strong relationships and work towards longevity, we ask all members to commit to attend the group for at least 4 months. Participant minimum 5; maximum 8.
