Mental Health in Asian American Communities
A Long Table Conversation with the Asian American Federation
Saturday, July 27, 2019
11:15 AM–12:00 PM
How do we talk about mental health when no one else around us does? How do we name and make visible that which is submerged in silence? Given the deep stigma that surrounds mental health in Asian American communities, how do we create safer, more equitable spaces to advance mental health healing and advocate for better care? The Asian American Federation hosts a discussion with experts and community members on how we can work together to find the power, openness, and empathy to break the silence around mental health and create lasting change.
The Rubin Museum invites you to take a seat at the table. Throughout our Year of Power, we are hosting The Long Table, an open-source participatory project conceived by artist and activist Lois Weaver, which provides a forum for visitors and community groups to engage in a series of conversations on sharing power.
