LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH FOR ASIAN AMERICAN YOUTH IS SUICIDE
THE THREE COMMUNITY PILLARS
1000 Cranes For Recovery is a community partnership collaboration to raise awareness, educate, and promote wellness to mental health advocates through arts and culture as a bridge to better serve the Asian American community.
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.
