Acknowledging Asian Mental Health in Tech | Brisbane

About this event

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and Asian American Pacific Islander Month. Mental health stigma affects all ethnicities, cultures, and nationalities, but Asian Americans may be more impacted, especially during this time.

Sometimes it is difficult for members of the Asian community to speak up about their mental health due to cultural constructs and to avoid opening up old wounds. Intergenerational trauma can also play a part in the absence of dialogue amongst family members and friends.

For those in the tech industry, not only is the stress and pressure to perform at work affecting the diaspora more than ever, but it can leave a negative impact on future generations. We will have mental health professionals from our AAPI community speak on their experiences in tech, how they addressed their mental health, and how they got to where they are now.

Join us for an hour and a half of healing and community.

Takeaways

  • Discuss how and why mental health stigma shows up in our communities and personal experiences.
  • Develop recognition of how culture impacts our definitions of achievement and success.
  • Boost your confidence and compassion for yourself and others while on this journey of healing
  • Be a part of a supportive and inspiring community filled with like-minded folx in our Asian diaspora
