Asian American mental health care providers in California are seeing an increase in demand for services in the wake of surging anti-Asian hate incidents, and the killings last month of six Asian women in the Atlanta area. The requests are notable for a community that’s been least likely of all racial groups to seek out mental health services.
In this special statewide broadcast of KQED's Forum, we take a deeper look at the heavy emotional and psychological toll of anti-Asian racism and what can be done to remove barriers to care. Hosted by Mina Kim.
