The COVID-19 Pandemic has undeniably impacted us all. With the origins of the coronavirus continuing to be debated, with the first major outbreak occurring in Wuhan, China, there has been an increase in verbal and physical attacks against people who are, or are perceived to be, of Asian descent. This has lead to an increase in mental health concerns among those within and working with the Asian and Pacific Islander community.
This webinar, hosted by the National Asian American Pacific Island Mental Health Association (NAAPIMHA), will be the first in a series of webinars on ensuring that the mental health needs of this diverse community are tended to. Per the National Asian American Pacific Island Mental Health Association (NAAPIMHA):
This roundtable is the first of a series that will address key issues including;
-The mental health implications for AANHPIs, including the impact of racism
-The relationship between mental and physical health
-Strategies to cope with COVID-19 and trauma
-Creating healthy communities beyond the current pandemic
