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

8 Dec, 2015

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
