December 15, 2023
This series will educate PHS health professionals about topics that are pertinent to their roles within the various agencies within the Department of Health and Human Services and other Public Health Service agencies by presenting topics that directly relate to the HHS Strategic Plan, the Secretary's Strategic Initiatives, current topics for DHHS OPDIVs who utilize PHS health professionals, and/or other topics directly related to the advancement of public health.
This presentation will discuss the historical, cultural, and sociopolitical factors contributing to psychological trauma within the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) community to enhance public health practices. By exploring personal and community narratives, attendees will learn about the barriers to accessing mental health services and resources and be equipped with culturally-informed skills to provide responsive support to AANPHI individuals.
