Join Asian Pacific Islander (API) mental health providers and peer support specialists based in LA County for a renewal space, also known as a healing circle, as we reconnect and check in on the mental health of our community. Two years into the pandemic, we have continued to see a rise in hate crimes and attacks against APIs. As a community, we've experienced so much loss and pain. How do we process this trauma? How do we move forward and heal? Let us consider what we can do going forward and how we can be prepared to respond to future occurrences and needs in our community.
