My project was a qualitative research to understand the stigma on Asian American youth’s usage of mental health service. I created a resourceful website called “Talk About Mental Health”, which allows youth to take action as well as to destigmatize and normalize the subject of mental health. This was a gratifying opportunity that has taught me to continue supporting Asian-American youth to stand up for themselves.
