Monthly Topical Discussions 

Facilitated by Wenhui Yang, LMHC and Crystal Han, MD

Asian Students Support Group is offered weekly by Wenhui Yang, LMHC, as a confidential and safe space for Asians and Asian Americans of all ethnic backgrounds to connect and explore.

Every 2nd Wednesday of the month, Crystal Han, CAMHS psychiatrist will join to cofacilitate conversation around the impact of their culture, heritage and identity on mental health and wellness.

 

 "I was once an international student myself and understand deeply the transition to academic life away from home and family of origin. I bring a culturally sensitive approach and welcome you to join this online support group. This group has now expanded to include Asian American students. " ~ Wenhui Yang

 

"As an Asian American female, it has been a complicated but rewarding journey to explore my history and racial and cultural identities. We hope to provide a space to foster community and support other AAPI students on their own journeys and toward our collective healing." ~ Crystal Han
