About the Event

Asian identity is confusing. It's more confusing when you mix in the current racism around being Asian. Let's talk about this in a safe space. What sorts of emotions does this bring up for you? What can we do about these emotions? How does this affect our relationship with our own identies? 

Bring a cup of tea, find your quiet space away from your close quarter, and open up Zoom to chat with us!

We are bringing on Daniel Tanh, a licensed clinical social worker and therapist to moderate this discussion.

About Daniel Tanh, LCSW

Daniel Tanh, LCSW, is a clinical social worker working in community mental health and in his own private practice doing therapy, advising, and consulting.  He believes that mental health is about overall wellness and incorporates social justice as part of his practice.  As the son of immigrant parents, he has witnessed firsthand the challenges people face in asking for help and finding quality support even without a pandemic. Because of his identity as an Asian American, in addition to his community organizing efforts, his mental health support strategies hone in on the ways that societal ideologies, community institutions, interpersonal interactions, and internalized beliefs can prevent or promote individual prosperity and health.  Currently, he is offering pro bono support services virtually, centered around the themes "Compassion, Community, and Care".
