NEW VIRTUAL THERAPY GROUPS

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) Adult Support Group

This is an online support group is for the purpose of providing a safe space to members in the AAPI community to let them process their own experiences and to ultimately let them H.E.A.L. – heal, express, accept, and learn. The AAPI community has been the target of hate crimes throughout U.S. history.  Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, prejudice and discrimination against AAPI individuals has become even more visible. We believe that at this juncture of social awareness for the AAPI community, it is important to provide support for our AAPI members.

This weekly group meets online for an hour at a time.

  • Will meet via Zoom on Wednesday evenings, starting in June, exact date TBD
