Please join the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (WHIAAPI) and young leaders from across the country on Tuesday, December 9, 2014 from 6:00-7:00 pm ET for our Young Leaders Dialogue (YLD) Google+ Hangout on Mental Health. Similar to the YLD on Education, this YLD will cover a variety of topics around mental health.
During the YLD, Administration officials, community representatives, and young leaders will highlight key federal resources such as MentalHealth.gov for addressing mental health concerns in the AAPI community. In addition, speakers will discuss the importance of the Affordable Care Act, especially as it relates to mental health coverage. Most importantly, we’ll have an opportunity to hear from you on your issues, concerns and questions!
WHIAAPI E3! Ambassadors throughout the country will host YLD watch-parties and in-person activities focused on mental health. We encourage you to join them in their ongoing efforts to “educate, engage, and empower” their campuses and communities around education, mental health, pathways to public service, and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) throughout the year.
You can submit questions any time on Twitter using #E3YLD, email them to WhiteHouseAAPI@ed.gov, or submit them on Google+ before or during the Hangout. Our YLDs depend on your thoughtful participation, so please register, join the conversation, and read about more ways to get engaged!
