Guide for Parents of Asian/Asian American Adolescents
During the pandemic, there has been a steep rise in racial discrimination, harassment, and physical assaults against Asian American youth. Parents play a key role in supporting children who may face these attacks or see this behavior around them.
The William James College Center for Multicultural and Global Mental Health (CMGMH) Asian Mental Health Program, in collaboration with the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Center for Cross Cultural Student Emotional Wellness, has developed a Guide to provide parents with the knowledge and skills to effectively support their children.
The guide is available in multiple languages, as listed below.
- William James College Resource Hub: Xenophobia and Anti-Asian Racism
- "Talking to Teens about Anti-Asian Discrimination in the Era of COVID-19," Webinar recording. Presented February 28, 2021.
This work was made possible in part by a grant from the Community Health Network Area (CHNA-17). CHNA-17’s mission is to foster community engagement, best practices, racial equity, and learning opportunities, to address the needs of marginalized communities. The coalition is funded by Mount Auburn Hospital, McLean Hospital, and the Cambridge Public Health Department/Cambridge Health Alliance.
