Asian American Women and Depression

Asian Americans and mental illness. This is important and lesser known. Yes, it’s a post that is Debbie Downer on a nice saturday, etc, but in the end, you can’t just hide these facts and situations. It’s happening to someone you know, you just don’t know it.

“This plays into a surprising statistic among Asian American women. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, Asian American women aged 15 to 24 have the highest rates of depressive symptoms of any ethnic or gender group. The CDC reports that young Asian American women have the second highest suicide rate among their age group – the same goes for Asian American women over 65.”
