UPRISERS partners with Changing Tides to offer FREE Mental Health Community Spaces this Summer
by UPRS Team·
Changing Tides Cafe – let’s hold space for mental health conversations in our AAPI community.
We’re continuing our teamwork with our friends at Changing Tides, first having been Ripple Effect: Walk for Suicide Prevention, to hold space and expand discussions on mental health for our community. And huge thanks to you, the 350 walking participants and all supporters, we were able to raise over $102,000 to support mental health and suicide prevention in the AAPI community.
Changing Tides Cafe is a step further towards mental awareness and destigmatizing the narrative mental health, nourishing opportunities to share our stories and seek the proper support.
