THE EDIT: AAPI MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES
AAPI MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES CURATED BY SERENA MOY-PEREIRA
As we near the end of AAPI Heritage Month, let’s take the time to create a space for mental health in the Asian community.
We started off this month with a curated edit of AAPI small businesses to support along with a focus of AAPI female creatives on our weekly 6 Things column.
As some of you may know, my career path has been anything but linear. I left my career as a nurse to pursue a creative path in design and start my own business; and that was, and still is, a work in progress – as life usually is. What guided and helped through the major life transition was facing my fears and working on resolving my internal conflicts, which therapy helped a lot with and was a big resource to have throughout the process.
Within the AAPI community, mental health still carries a stigma and isn't often talked about openly. I'm honored to have crossed paths recently with Serena Moy-Pereira, a content creator focused on building intentional community within the Bay Area, who curated a list of AAPI mental health resources below.
