AboutAsians for Mental Health
Asians for Mental Health was created to help Asians feel seen, heard, and empowered in their journeys towards better mental health.
Dr. Jenny Wang is the founder of the @asiansformentalhealth community. She started Asians for Mental Health in September 2019 with the dream of developing an Asian therapist directory. She is a licensed clinical psychologist and corporate speaker on the intersections of Asian American identity, mental health, and social justice. Her passion for Asian mental health stems from her memories of diminishing her Asian identity for the majority of her formative years and feeling alone in her struggles to understand mental health issues within Asian culture.
Jojo Luk, LMSW, (she/her) is a second generation Chinese Canadian from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and has been living in Houston, TX for the past 10 years. She holds a Bachelors and Masters degree in Social Work that she received in Canada. Her experience has mainly focused on HIV/AIDS Care and Treatment and Community Mental Health. She is also passionate about mental health issues within the APIDA community. She feels emboldened by the watershed moment our communities are experiencing, and hopes to see this change continue for future generations. She is currently working as the executive coordinator for Dr. Jenny Wang, and supports the impactful work she does for the Asians for Mental Health platform that she created.
