National Mental Health Awareness Week 2015

The Harvard AAPI Community is hosting various events, ranging from discussions to study breaks, this week in honor of National Mental Health Awareness Week!

RSVP to the Facebook event for further updates!

A message from the group:

"We recognize that one week with a few events geared towards discussing mental health in the AAPI community is not enough. We recognize that many people are tired of discussions and want to see real, tangible change happen on campus and in larger society. We hope, however, that this week can become part of a larger movement towards advocating for self-love, care, and compassion in regards to mental health in the AAPI community. "
