COMMUNITY: FMHI 1st 2012 Meeting 1-12-2012

The Filipino Mental Health Initiative (FMHI) had its first meeting of 2012 at the Pilipino Bayanihan Resource Center at 2121 Junipero Serra Blvd, in Daly City.  FMHI is working to address the heavy stigma around mental health issues within the Filipino community, as well as developing best practices to engage the community so that the barriers to awareness, education, and treatment of mental health issues can be overcome.

The highlight of the meeting was viewing a short film made by students from San Francisco State University about depression and stigma around mental health issues in the Filipino community.  A very rich discussion followed among FMHI participants afterward.

FMHI’s next monthly meeting will take place at PBRC on February 9th, 2012 from 3:30pm-5pm.  All are welcome.
