I came across this wonderful blog by chance today as I was scrolling through my Facebook and noticed one of my friends “liking” one of their recent Tumblr posts. Run by the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA) Mental Health Initiative, as(i)am; is the Asian American mental health parallel to G3S, providing space to elevate the voices of a community often marginalized within our culture and broader society at large. I hope some of you find solace in these stories and I, for one, have reached out to find more resources on Asian American mental health.

What It’s Like to Be an Asian-American With Depression

What It’s Like to Be an Asian-American With Depression:

Here is a short story for the anon that asked us to do a segment on mental health. Unfortunately the author does not delve into what resources she and her parents consulted to educate themselves about anxiety, depression, and mental health but I hope the story provides some comfort that other Asian Americans have gone through a similar experience. I appreciate how the author discusses the cultural context that informs the stigma of mental illness in the Asian American community. For our parents whom have proved resilient in the face of poverty and discrimination, mental illness can be taken as a sign of a weakness in character and not a legitimate health concern.
