The Powerful Intersectionality of Mental Health & Korean American Identity
Realize the powerful intersectionality of mental health and identity and how it correlates with the social constructs surrounding our cultural identity. It begins with understanding the mental health implications of the model minority myth and the acculturation experience as it relates to you. Finally, learn to acknowledge mindful identity which is about grasping our own narrative to strengthen our mental health.
