Assemblymember Mike Eng
Invites you to a Legislative town hall and call to action on
The State of Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Mental Health in California
Wednesday, November 18th, 2009
5:30 PM- 8:00 PM
USC Norris Research Tower: Aresty Auditorium
1450 Biggy Street, Los Angeles, CA 90033
This hearing will bring to light mental health issues that are most salient for the Asian
American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Community. Contrary to
the model minority myth, AANHPIs have serious needs for mental
health care that have been inadequately addressed.
The hearing will involve testimony from mental health care experts, primary care service providers, patients, researchers, advocates, and community based organizations.
Co-sponsors: API Legislative Caucus, APIscan, A3PCON, Guam Communications Network, Health Justice Network, Kaiser Permanente, Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander Alliance, Pacific Islander Health Partnership, Pacific Islander Festival Association, Samoan National Nurses Association, Tongan Community Service Center, and UC AAPIP MRP.
