Original Webinar Date: 5/15/20   COVID-19 has had a profound impact on the mental health of countless individuals, including Asian and Pacific Islanders (API). For some, it may spark an old trauma and PTSD associated with being a refugee or immigrant. Some may experience severe depression due to the loss of a job or isolation from one’s support system because of social distancing. Sadly, there also continues to be the emotional trauma brought on by racist attacks on API. In honor of May as both Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and Mental Health Awareness Month, this national round table discusses the mental health impact of COVID-19 on API communities. While we must address the serious problems our communities are facing, it is also important to celebrate who we are as APIs - this, too, is mental health.   This round table is the first of a series that addresses key issues including: The mental health implications for APIs, including the impact of racism The relationship between mental and physical health Strategies to cope with COVID-19 and trauma Creating healthy communities beyond the current pandemic
