Get Involved


The New York Coalition for Asian American Mental Health has historically helped pioneer community wellness, advocated to improve health services, and increased the visibility of underserved Asian American communities. We are calling for Asian American mental health professionals to join together and continue building upon this legacy.

Throughout the past year, racism, xenophobia, and other forms of oppression caused an increase in acts of violence and hate targeting Asian Americans. This collective trauma came alongside the devastating impact of the pandemic which worsened many long-standing issues in society. Along with the extensive increase in mental health needs came the additional urgency to support community wellness.

Many have been thinking about the question, “What can I do?” Asian American mental health professionals have a unique role to play in our various communities. Whether that is through advocacy, community service, professional development, or collaboration with other organizations, we are actively planning and organizing ways to promote the mental health of Asian American communities throughout the NYC area and beyond.

The Coalition invites all members old and new, along with those interested in utilizing their skills and talents, to envision the future of Asian communities and collaboratively map out an action plan. All those who who are interested in developing their leadership skills are especially welcome.

Volunteering with the Coalition is a gratifying experience. Your efforts have a profound effect on our ability to make a difference in our community. Whether you would like to participate in the organization of an event or become active in the administration of our organization, we welcome your involvement.

Below are some of the benefits of volunteering:

  • Gain experience working in a non-profit environment
  • Use your talents and experience to make a difference in the Asian community
  • Meet like-minded individuals from diverse mental health backgrounds
  • Learn more about yourself and others
