Welcome to Episode 29 of the Asian American History 101 podcast! It's Mental Health Awareness Month! There are a number of reasons that Asian Americans face difficulties with mental health. So Gen & Ted dive into the history and reasons that Asian Americans don’t always reach out for mental health help. If you are looking to support organizations focused on Asian Mental Health or need support, look up the Asian Mental Health Collective or the National Asian American Pacific Islander Mental Health Association. We also talk about the new Face Value album, the signing of the Anti-Asian Hate Crimes Law, and Jeremy Lin. We close with another segment of Giving the Karate Chop to Stereotypes where we take on the stereotype that Asians aren’t athletic. Want to learn more?
