Dr. Helen Hsu, the president of the Asian American Psychological Association talks to Emil about the status of mental health in the AAPI community.

We're not accessing services. We are trying to DIY mental health. And it's a big mistake.

Dr. Hsu talks about how things are changing to empower the community to seek services and not to be quiet and keep problems to themselves.

Topics discussed. Suicide. How low-income and well-to-to-families both underutilize services. How beating the stigma that keeps people quiet and away from mental health services, starts with talking openly to each other about dealing with the system and seeking care. When no one talks, no one seeks out mental health services.
