Seeking Indian, Filipino, Chinese & Korean families to help with youth project 

The Mental Health Foundation is working on a project to increase social inclusion and reduce stigma and discrimination for Asian young people with experience of mental health issues, like depression and anxiety.

We would love to have family support for this project so we can understand what such young Asian people, aged 12 to 28, need to feel socially included.

Auckland-based Indian, Filipino, Chinese and Korean parents of young people with experience of mental health issues are invited to participate in our research by being interviewed by the project manager, Charlie Sheng.

All information you provide will be confidential.

The interview, expected to take about one hour face to face (not over the telephone), can be arranged at a time and place that suits the participants.

The interview will involve a series of questions that will help us develop strategies to counter the issues and barriers faced by these young people.

Each participant will receive a $50 Westfield voucher as our way of thanking them for their time. 

If you have any questions about the project or want to take part, please contact Charlie on 09 623 4810 ext 847 or email: sheng@mentalhealth.org.nz

Get involved with the Asian Youth Voice Programme

The Wellbeing Charitable Trust Board is running an Asian Youth Voice Programme and would like to hear from young people aged between 15+ to 19.

The aim of the programme is to create an opportunity for a group of Asian youth to discuss who they are as an Asian Kiwi, such as challenges and celebration. The programme will offer discussion and training on topics of aspiration, goal setting, leadership, and well being. On top of that, Asian leaders who have made significant changes on behalf of Asian community will be sharing their personal story.

The youth participants will be connected to their peer through social media in facilitating the discussion outside the programme. By the end of the programme, the group gets to decide to stay on to further contribute as a reference group. The programme will run in three to four weekends consecutively.

We would like to hear from you if you or one of your parents are from Asia, such as Central Asia, East Asia, Southeast Asia, Middle East and South Asia.
