Summary: Mental Health Awareness and Resource Education Workshops for Chinatown Community


Anti-Asian hate incidents, feelings of isolation and loss that continue post COVID and immigrant bashing have raised awareness of the need for Mental Health Education and resources in the Chinatown community and an expressed need from the businesses, organizations, and schools that participated in the RC of Chinatown's Covid Global Grant. The Chinatown RC in partnership with community organizations CMP, and Charles B Wang Community Centre and in collaboration with POND PRACTICE Community Mental Health Services and will provide bilingual workshops on the meaning of mental health conditions, knowing the warning signs, common illnesses, referral and treatment of medical, social and counselling support. The two-hour workshops will be interactive and provide a safe space where individuals can be exposed to and encouraged to bring awareness of the various internal and external influences that can result in stress, or feelings of lack of control. The Rotary Club of Chinatown will provide and distribute educational materials that do not promote any controversial ideas, political, or religious agendas. The materials will provide educational content that promotes positive behaviours, and mental well-being skills to use in groups or as individuals.

GOALS: Provide community members simple ways to cope and strengthen their mental health through self-awareness, emotional understanding of how to help someone /family member by having a respectful conversation , and techniques to help others. Teaching ways of being non-judgemental and supportive.
