Community Impact: Big Idea Talk
Filipinos are an immigrant community affected by alarming mental health disparities including high suicide rates, but the time and conversations families have together can help.
Pediatrician Joyce Javier shares her research and personal experiences alongside her team including Pediatrician Horacio Lopez, Psychologist Dean Coffey, and Occupational Therapists Jed David and Aviril Sepulveda.
Their work involves asking the community their needs, strengths, and solutions along with Kapwa (shared identity) to create a culture of mental health among Filipinos.
