Represent Recovery: Elaine Peng

Our Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month series continues with Elaine Peng, who leads NAMI Chinese programs and is the president of Mental Health Association for Chinese Communities, sharing her personal story about her daughter's bipolar disorder and the effect it had on her own mental health. Elaine also discusses mental health stigma within the Chinese community.

 

Our Represent Recovery Initiative calls for a shift in the way we view mental health in diverse cultural communities. It aims to serve members of underrepresented communities while centering their voices in the overall mental health movement. Visibility and representation matter both in mental health treatment and mental health awareness activism.

Today we unveil our Asian Pacific Islander resource page.
