Asians 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 https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YP7WPGN
