Putting Yourself First: Maintaining Mental Health in the Legal Field Under The Scrutiny of the Asian American Community

Putting Yourself First: Maintaining Mental Health in the Legal Field Under The Scrutiny of the Asian American Community

October 19, 2021
 4:30pm to 6:00pm
 Online

Join us as we acknowledge World Mental Health Day on October 10th through a panel we are hosting on October 19th via Zoom at 4:30pm. Mental health is already heavily stigmatized, but every culture treats it differently; APALSA would like to address the stress put on the Asian American community to suppress their mental health concerns, thereby invalidating their mental well-being.

The panel will feature DJ Ida, Executive Director of National Asian American Pacific Islander Mental Health Association; Ailin Chang, Program Coordinator of Midwest Asian Health Association, Jonas Ginsburg, Clinical Supervisor of Midwest Asian Health Association, and attorneys from McGuireWoods. Each member will speak to how they advocate for mental health, followed by a Q&A with the panelists, so please feel free to submit questions to APALSA regarding anything - from available resources, to firm practices, or even simply how to unwind from one bad day. We will also open the floor for questions if you are unable to submit a question to us prior.

See Zoom details below - we hope to see you there!
