2 Best Directories to Find Asian American Therapists

May is Asian American heritage month and mental health month, the intersection of two very important things to me and millions of us who have an Asian Amerian background.

On this go around, let me share the 2 most valuable listings of race-conscious culturally-competent Asian American therapists and counselors, psychologists and psychiatrists, those who provide professional clinical care for us:

Start with TransformAsian Mental Health Online Conference on May 1st

Asian Mental Health Collective (AMHC) is hosting the 2nd annual virtual TransformAsian conference to connect thousands of individuals around the world on their mental health journeys. The name “TransformAsian” alludes to transformations, and our belief in the power of change and the importance of celebrating recovery.

The TransformAsian 2022 theme – “Breaking the Cycle” – speaks to our commitment to destigmatize mental health issues important to Asian communities. Hear from speakers on topics such as internalized stigma, intergenerational trauma, and the model minority myth, as well as from special guests and performers.
