TAP SD: Mental Health Panel
April 14, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Did you know the month of May is Mental Health Month? In preparation for the month of May, TAP-SD presents a mental health panel to raise awareness and educate the public about topics such as Asian mental health, trauma, and eating disorders. Our distinguished panelists are 4 licensed clinical social workers who have a depth of experience working with patients who suffer from mental health disorders. They will discuss issues they encounter in San Diego’s Asian American and greater community.
Unfortunately, among ethnic groups, Asian Americans are less likely to seek help for their emotional or mental health problems than whites, according to preliminary data from the National Latino and Asian American Study (NLAAS), conducted from May 2002 through December 2003-the first national study to examine the rates of mental illness and treatment use among a national sampling of three major Asian-American groups. The study, principally funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, interviewed 2,095 participants, consisting of large samples of Chinese, Filipino and Vietnamese-as well as other Asian Americans, including among others, Japanese, Koreans and Asian Indians.
