National Asian American Pacific Islander Mental Health Association
The National Asian American Pacific Islander Mental Health Association (NAAPIMHA) has updated its resource list to include behavioral health information for all 50 states. Whenever possible, agencies providing behavioral health services to AANHPIs were included. For states that do not have any, the State Department responsible for mental health services is listed.
This information can be accessed by going to www.naapimha.org, clicking on resource list and opening AANHPI Service Providers.
NAAPIMHA also identified resources specifically addressing COVID-19 including those collecting data on hate crimes and mental health advocacy groups that include national hot line numbers. There is also information on the Friends DO Make A Difference campaign to raise awareness of mental health.
