🌈 親愛的大家,收件快樂! 😊

同志驕傲月快樂! 我們支持 LGBTQ 社區中的每個人。

根據 Trevor Project 的數據:LGBTQ 青年出現抑鬱症狀的可能性是異性戀同齡人的 6 倍,自殺未遂的可能性是其 5 倍。

所以,讓我們在本月重點關注 LGBTQ 青年的心理健康。

今天的引述來自 Desmond Patton 博士:


- 美國華裔精神健康聯盟 執行長

Elaine Peng 彭一玲 敬上

Happy Pride month! We stand with and support everyone in the LGBTQ+ community. 

According to Trevor Project: LGBTQ+ youth are six times more likely to experience symptoms of depression, and five times more likely to have attempted suicide than their heterosexual counterparts.

So, Let's highlight the mental health of LGBTQ youth this month.

Today’s quote is from Dr. Desmond Patton:

“There is power in authenticity and vulnerability. Work each and every day to be your true self.”

- Elaine Peng,Executive Director & Founder

Mental Health Association for Chinese Communities (MHACC)


🌈 我們很高興地宣布 MHACC有了新的副執行長 - Steven Chen 👏

Steven Chen 於 2021 年 2 月加入 MHACC,幫助管理MHACC的兩個心理健康手機apps (MiSunshine和UrSpace) 的開發工作。之後,他參與了MHACC的多個其他項目和組織的內部管理工作。2022年初,他與其他團隊成員一起成功申請加州政府「抵抗仇恨犯罪」資助項目。

作爲一名IT專業人士,Steven Chen有20年在私營公司裏管理大小項目的經驗。他還積極服務美國華人社區,撰寫有關美國華人歷史和現今華裔爲社會正義所作的努力的文章是他的興趣愛好。多年來,他與全美多個亞裔組織友好合作,互相幫助。我們堅信他的經驗和熱忱會让MHACC提升到新的高度!


🔅 We are pleased to announce the transition of Steven Chen’s role to Deputy Director.

Steven Chen first joined MHACC in Feb 2021 as a project coordinator to oversee the development of two MHACC’s mental health apps, MiSunshine and UrSpace. Later, he worked on several other MHACC’s ongoing grant related projects and helped with internal operations. Early 2022, he was part of a team which successfully applied and secured the Stop the Hate grant.

Mr. Chen comes with twenty years of private sector experience of managing large projects as an IT professional. He is also active in serving the Chinese American community. It is his passion to write articles about Chinese American history and the fight for social justice today. Over the years, he cooperated with Asian American organizations nationwide. His skill sets and passion are a good fit for MHACC.

Together, we are looking forward to better serving our community.


🌈 關注 LGBTQ 青年的心理健康 ❤️

美國精神病學協會認為,LGBTQ+ 青年和其他同齡人之間的心理健康差異源於污名和歧視,這使尋求醫療保健和尋求社會支持的過程複雜化。


另一方面,我們有責任將我們的文化從一種基本的寬容轉變為一種支持所有身份的文化。 通過體現包容性來改變 LGBTQ+ 青年的生活。

LGBTQ+ 青年資源(特雷弗計劃)

TrevorText:將 START 短信發送至 678-678,這是一項由訓練有素的 Trevor 顧問提供的機密短信服務,全天候 24/7 可用。

🔅 The American Psychiatric Association believes that mental health disparities among LGBTQ+ youth and other peers stem from stigma and discrimination that complicates the process of seeking health care and finding social support.

When parents fully understand the intersection of mental illness and identity, they can better recognize LGBTQ+ health disparities and help their children embrace all aspects of their identity and live fulfilling lives.

On the other hand, we have a responsibility to transform our culture from one of basic tolerance to one of support for all identities. Transforming outcomes for LGBTQ+ youth by embodying inclusion.

🌼 為德州小學槍擊遇難者哀悼,呼籲更嚴格的槍枝管控措施 🙏

2022 年 5 月 24 日,18 歲的拉莫斯在德克薩斯州烏瓦爾德的羅伯小學用 AR-15 式步槍射殺了 19 名學生和 2 名教師,另有 17 人受傷。 這是美國歷史上第三大致命的校園槍擊案。

6 月 2 日,拜登總統向全國發表講話,呼籲嚴控攻擊型武器和大容量彈夾,宣布支持允許法官下令暫時收繳保管某人槍枝的“紅旗法”和加強背景調查,把購買攻擊型武器的法定年齡從 18 歲上升到 21 歲。

MHACC 為這起事件深感悲痛,我們為遇難者哀悼💐,並呼籲更嚴格的槍枝管控措施。


2012 年Sandy Hook小學慘案發生後,時任副總統拜登就提出過一系列控槍方案,被參院共和黨人否決掉。這十年來,美國死於槍擊的人數逐年上升。為什麼只有美國會出現這種情形?人命攸關,在控槍這件事上,美國應該向澳大利亞學習。

全文 Full article:

🔅 On May 24, 2022, 18-year-old Ramos fatally shot nineteen students and two teachers, and wounded seventeen other people with an AR-15 style rifle, at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. This was the third-deadliest school shooting in the United States.

On June 2, in a rare address to the nation, President Joe Biden called for bans on assault-type weapons and high-capacity magazines, announced his support for red flag laws and stronger background checks, insisted that the legal age for purchasing assault-type weapons jump from 18 to 21, and more.

MHACC is deeply saddened by this incident, we mourn the victims and call for stricter gun control measures.

In an recent interview with World Daily, MHACC director Elaine Peng said:

The idea that everyone can protect themselves by owning a gun is the wrong way to go. Instead of turning society into a battlefield, we should address the fundamental problems.

The United States is the only developed country that has seen mass shootings every year for the past 20 years that pose a major threat to public safety.

According to a February 2022 report by Pew Research, gun related deaths in the U.S. in 2020 reached 45,222, a 14% increase from the previous year.

In 2012, then-Vice President Biden proposed a series of gun control plans after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, which was later rejected by Senate Republicans. In the past decade, the number of people killed by guns in the U.S.  has increased every year, which is not the case in other countries.

Humanity are at stake, and we should learn from other countries when it comes to gun control.

🌈為監獄囚犯們的人權發聲 👊

5月24日,一些人權組織抵達奧克蘭縣法院,舉行集會,抗議聖麗塔監獄囚犯的高死亡率。MHACC的志願者也到場給予大力支持。 我們一起為有心理健康問題的囚犯發聲,要求阿拉米達主管採取行動。

🔅 On May 24, some human rights groups arrived at the Oakland County Courthouse to hold a rally to protest the deaths of inmates in Santa Rita Jail. Volunteers from MHACC were also present to give strong support. Together, we spoke out for inmates with mental health issues, and demanded Alameda supervisor to take action。


🌈 愛心中餐日 🍜


🔅 May 25th is the annual Chinese Food Day, which is one of the traditional programs of Asian American Heritage Month.MHACC volunteers made delicious Chinese food with love, and sent it to the patients in the Villa Fairmont Mental Health Rehabilitation Center. We hope to share some kindness and bring comfort to those who are in pain and in need.


🌈 美國華人大會(UCA)2022年7月14-16日 👊

美國華人聯合會(UCA)和其夥伴組織們將舉辦第三屆“美國華人大會” (Chinese American Convention)和第一屆“全國青年大會” (UCA National Youth Convention)。屆時將有白宮官員、國會議員、華裔民選官員、智庫學者、工商領袖、社會組織、社區領袖以及數百位關心華人社區發展的華裔朋友和下一代代表們聚集一堂,共商大計。這將是全美華人參政議政、培育下一代、彰顯華人價值觀和優良傳統的又一里程碑。 “美國華人大會”是一個全美華人的盛會,是一個開放的全美華人社區的交流平台;而“UCA全國青年大會”也是面對全美華人下一代的開放交流平台。

🔅 Chinese American Convention(UCA)July 14-16, 2022

The Chinese American Association (UCA) and its partner organizations will host the 3rd Chinese American Convention and the 1st UCA National Youth Convention on July 14-16, 2022. 

White House officials, members of Congress, elected officials of Chinese origin, think tank scholars, business leaders, social organizations, community leaders, and hundreds of Chinese friends and representatives of the next generation who care about the development of the Chinese community will gather together to discuss major plans. This will be another milestone for Chinese Americans to participate in politics, cultivate the next generation, and demonstrate Chinese culture and traditions. The Chinese American Convention is a grand event and an open communication platform for us,

and the "UCA National Youth Conference" is also an open platform for the next generation of Chinese in the United States.
