Once a month, Crystal Han, MD, CAMHS psychiatrist and Evy Tran, LICSW, facilitate a conversation around the impact of AAPI culture, heritage and identity on mental health and wellness.

"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

 4:30- 5:30pm | Oct 11, Nov 8, Dec 13, Jan 10, Feb 14, Mar 13, Apr 10, May 8

Topics each month

  • Anti-Asian Hate

Anti-Asian Hate – come to have a space to process your experiences as well as reflect on current events affecting Asian communities, such as the Monterey Park and Half Moon Bay shootings.

  • Who am I?

Who am I? Exploring our identity between worlds, cultures and values and its impact on mental health.

  • Tiger Parents

Tiger Parents: Communicating and expressing oneself with a family who struggles with communication and feelings. Shame and guilt, how to handle pressure and expectations, and better understand where they are coming from. 

  • Culture Clash

Culture Clash: How do we take the best of both worlds? Which cultural aspects harm more than help?

  • Racialized Identities

"People of color"--what do our racialized identities mean for us as AAPI? Asian American history and Model Minority myth.

  • Intersectionality

Intersectionality--what identities does we hold and how do they work together?
