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.

Join fellow Asian American mental health professionals for peer-based group supervision. Among many others, topics have centered around racism & oppression, adapting to changes during the pandemic, navigating difficult interactions, discussing clinical challenges, and dealing with stress and trauma in the workplace, at school, and in the community.

Micro-, mezzo-, and macro-level issues often influence the mental health and well-being of individuals and communities. How do we incorporate advocacy, community service, professional development, and collaboration among ourselves and others to fight oppression and improve the mental health and well-being of Asian American communities in the NYC region and beyond? Join the NYCAAMH’s Planning and Organizing Committee in processing, planning, and executing ways for us to take action.

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. By joining our peer-led group, you will be able to:

  • Gain experience working in a non-profit environment

  • Use your talents and experience to make a difference in the Asian American community
  • Meet like-minded individuals from diverse roles in the mental health field
