When it comes to mental health, Asian Americans are hesitant to seek mental health services. Less than 9% of Asian Americans, on average, seek professional help, and are three times less likely to seek help than white Americans. What causes this disparity, and how can we help break the stigma surrounding mental illness for this community?
In this session, we talk with Geoffrey Liu, MD, about what’s preventing people from getting the help they need and answer your questions about rethinking the ways we engage with this population.
