Fellow therapist, Sharon Chan Lmft, invited me to sit down with her and discuss mental health in the Asian American culture. In this video we discussed stigma, specifically, shame and how seeking mental health implies weakness. We’ll be creating more mini videos about Asian American culture and mental health, so stay tuned to Sharon’s YouTube page and website: https://www.sharonchanlmft.com/! In the meantime, enjoy this video! Hopefully it’s helpful and informative.
