#MentalHealthTalk With TUA: A 5-part Zoom series

It goes without saying that 2020 was a challenging year for many as we coped with isolation, forced social distancing from family and friends, loss of employment, and more. Although social media images might have suggested that we should do and be more, it is important that we learn how to give ourselves permission to focus on self care. Adjusting to the “new norm” further requires that we learn how to grieve for the life that we used to have. Through it all, in the end, we may find a craving for authenticity in ourselves and a redefinition of who we want to be in this new world.

Mental health challenges have nothing to do with being lazy or weak. Many people need help in this area, but it is often not talked about openly.

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. It accounted for the loss of more than 41,000 American lives in 2020—more than double the number of lives lost to homicide.

The @theuniversalasian will be hosting a 5-part series on "#MentalHealthTalk With TUA" to help our Universal Asian community start the new year with a great mental spirit to make 2021 a year of healing and growth as we come out of the pandemic bubble.

Meet the three coaches:

Kate Powers, leading Part 2 on “Giving ourselves permission”
Kyla Mitsunaga, leading Part 3 on “Allowing ourselves to grieve”
Song Kim, leading Part 4 on “Finding authenticity in ourselves”
January and May will be our introduction and closing sessions with all three coaches in discussion together with you.
