Respondents Needed for Informal Survey about AAPIs with Mental Illness

8A-2013-03-09-APIDC-logoAsians and Pacific Islanders with Disabilities of California (APIDC) is taking an informal survey to gather anecdotes about the experiences of Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders with the mental health system. APIDC has been accepted to present on this subject at “Health Disparities Research at the Intersection of Race, Ethnicity and Disability: A National Conference” in Washington D.C. on April 26, 2013. This conference is organized by Project Intersect, Oregon Health & Science University. APIDC believes it is important to highlight real life stories of AAPIs with mental illness.

We’ve previously featured Ms. Daphne Kwok is the Executive Director of APIDC in our APA Spotlight series. If you have had experiences with the mental health system, I’m sure your input would be appreciated. The survey closes soon and can be found at

About jozjozjoz

jozjozjoz is a taiwanese-american gal who lives and blogs underneath the hollywood sign and who doesn’t clean her fishtank unless the fish starts to do the backstroke. she is also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but cannot stop from bumping into door handles, cabinet doors, and anything else that protrudes or has a sharp edge. she does not run with scissors for this same reason. she can pet the fur off a dog but don’t ask her to go anywhere near a horse. or a moth. or a roach. her dealings with L.A.’s finest (aka the parking violations department) are legend, as are her giant sneezes. Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank.
