The Chinese Mental Health Promotion Program improves the lives of individuals in the Chinese community by increasing awareness of mental health issues, promoting wellness through educational/ recreational/leisure activities as well as reducing the stigma associated with mental illness.
The Chinese Mental Health Promotion Program offers health promotion activities, cultural events, and workshops and provides service resource information. Now our activities are held via Zoom.
- Cantonese ‘Heart to Heart’ Share and Care Group:
Facilitated by a professional with subject matter expertise, this interactive group meets once a month to encourage participants to learn ways to manage emotions, stress, and interpersonal issues as well as to promote wellness, self-awareness, acceptance, and growth through a variety of health promotion topics chosen or suggested by our participants. We meet on the last Wednesday of the month from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm via Zoom.
- Happy Seniors Program:
The Chinese Program organizes culturally rich and supportive activities ranging from painting, singing, drama, exercise sessions, and festival events. The program includes a component entitled “Happy Seniors,” which provides programming specific to the unique needs of Cantonese and Mandarin speaking older adults.
The list is updated regularly for people who need the service resource information.
Do not let fear of technology keep you from joining in the fun – we have volunteers who taught all participants to use zoom and they will teach you too!
