Happy Mother’s Day and APA Mental Health Day

Each year on May 10th, RAMS commemorates Asian Pacific American Mental Health Day to raise awareness about mental health in Asian and Pacific American communities. Usually, we host events like conferences and presentations.However, as we are sheltering-in-place due to COVID-19 and with May 10 coinciding with Mother’s Day, we released a video shot through camera phones and zoom conferences from home, our residential facility, and our offices wishing everyone a happy Mother’s Day and APA Mental Health Day.

You can find the video here.

In 2010, RAMS spearheaded the effort to establish May 10th as “Asian Pacific American Mental Health Day”, to raise awareness about mental health in the Asian Pacific American community. The month of May was already established as Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and National Mental Health Awareness Month so it was fitting to have a day that aligns both awareness efforts.
