SURGE IN ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION AMONG ASIAN AMERICANS SINCE 2019
LESS LIKELY TO SEEK HELP OF TREATMENT COMPARED TO OTHER AMERICANS
LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH FOR ASIAN AMERICAN YOUTH IS SUICIDE
THE THREE COMMUNITY PILLARS
We at 1000 Cranes for Recovery, a peer-run organization are tired of living with fear and anxiety surrounding mental health issues. We are committed to fight cultural stigma by focusing on a cultural relevant approach, we call the Three Community Pillars in order to: Raise Awareness, Educate, and Promote Wellness Activities Utilizing Cultural Humility.
Asian Americans often carry deeply buried untold experiences of trauma and mental health conditions due to cultural stigma and shame. Sharing your story strengthens hope and resilience for all.
Asian Americans often lack mental health literacy because of cultural stigma and shame. Learning from peers and providers on the available resources will enrich not only your mental health literacy but will fight cultural stigma which is an essential and critical part of recovery.
Meaningful wellness activities can help community members spiritually grow and strengthen our diverse and rich Asian American ethnic identities as well as help protect against illness and build resilience.
1000 Cranes For Recovery is a community partnership platform to raise awareness, educate, and promote wellness to mental health advocates utilizing cultural humility to better serve the Asian American community.
