Conversations, Episode 18: Asian American Mental Health

October 12, 2018

Dr. Nicholas Covino speaks with Dr. Jean Lau Chin, Professor at Adelphi University in New York.

Society is becoming more globalized than ever, and the field of mental health is struggling to keep up. Minority groups face countless obstacles in accessing mental health services. And when they are able to access these services, they’re often met with a therapist who doesn’t understand their culture – be it language, values, or other intangible aspects of their life experience. William James College President Dr. Nicholas Covino speaks with Dr. Jean Lau Chin, Professor at Adelphi University in New York, about the need for cultural competency in our increasingly global, interconnected world. Dr. Chin served as keynote speaker for a conference held at William James titled, “Integrative and Holistic Approaches to Mental Health Care for Asians.”
