Making Waves: A Mental Health Conference

  • Japanese American National Museum 100 North Central Avenue Los Angeles, CA, 90012 United States (map)

This day-long conference will offer a safe space for the API community to address, examine, and understand mental health in its various forms. Conference plenaries will be interspersed with workshops and small group discussions that focus on specific topics related to mental health.

The conversation around mental health within the API community is one that has been and continues to be highly stigmatized due to several external and internal factors. The goal of this conference will be to shed a positive light on these topics and allow for a space where open conversations about mental health can be held.

Lunch will be provided.

Conference topics will include:
- Intergenerational Mental Health
- Understanding Student Stress
- How to Access Mental Health Care
- Mental Health for the Japanese Speaking Community
- Family Dynamics
- Senior Mental Health Care
- Mental Health through Poetry
- Navigating Relationships
- and much more!
