SCCAP Supports the Asian American Psychological Association statement
The SCCAP board is asking all of our society members to join us in standing together with the Asian American Psychological Association and supporting its statement against stigma, racism and xenophobia. Please share the AAPA statement with your colleagues and ask them to post their support on social media.
“All of us–regardless of our race, ethnicity, national origin, or citizenship–are striving to cope with anxiety and fear brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and the social isolation precautions needed to reduce its spread. As an organization whose mission is to advance the mental health and well-being of Asian American communities, we draw attention to the additional stressors faced by our communities who are contending with increased stigma, racism, and xenophobia.”
