  • different races hand Asian American Mental Health Awareness
    Mental health conditions do not discriminate based on race, color, gender or identity. Anyone can experience the challenges of mental illness regardless of their background. The National Alliance on Mental Illness warns, however, that background and identity can make access to mental health treatment much more difficult, especially during times of crisis.
