AGC 2021 ASIAN AMERICAN MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK

UCLA's Asian Greek Council is proud to announce our 4th Annual Asian American Mental Health Awareness Week!

 

Mental health is a part of everyone's life and can create unique challenges for us depending on our environment, cultures, and experiences. During week 4, AAMHAW aims to provide a community and a safe space to discuss the topic of mental health and increase its awareness in the Asian American Community. With such a large scope provided by the topic of mental health, our goal is to narrow it down and address how it manifests itself within the Asian American community, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to increase awareness by providing information, support, and a safe space. Though in recent times there has been increased awareness and acceptance, it is still difficult for many of us to not only share our struggles but also feel sincerely acknowledged. 

 

This year, our goal is to “Bridge the Generations” and share our experiences on the effects of intergenerational social, cultural, economic, and political discrepancies on mental health. In our workshops, we will focus on navigating through tough conversations with our families and practice healthy conversations. In lieu of the suspension of in-person meetings on campus, the student leaders of the AGC Board have worked hard to adapt AAMHAW into a completely virtual and online forum, while trying our best to retain the personalized and safe environments of our previous in-person events. Join us during week 4 as we explore and embrace our mental health journey as a community.
