BENDING NOT BROKEN: STORIES OF RESILIENCE
ASIAN GOLD RIBBON- Asian Youth Mental Health Summit
Wednesday, May 18, 2022, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. EDT
Join this 2- hour community conversation with honoured guests and panel of Asian youth sharing their stories, experiences, and concerns; as well as ideas for needed change at individual, community, educational, and systemic levels.
This year, Asian Gold Ribbon is focusing on Asian Youth mental health. Children and adolescents (up to 18 years) reported 29% of racist incidents in 2021 according to the CCNCTO and Project 1907 (2022) report. Reports by Youth, 18 years of age or younger, rose astronomically by 286% from the previous year.
Honoured guests and a panel of Asian Canadian Youth will share their stories. Together with our community of allies, we will develop Calls to Action to support Asian Youth mental health in Canada, where individual, community, and systemic level changes are needed.
