流感季提前來臨 😷

據美國 CDC 11月15日發布的最新數據,2022年的流感季開始得很早且情況糟糕,流感病例持續上升,已有至少280萬感染病例,住院病例達2.3萬例,特別是幼兒住院部和ICU,流感住院率為十多年以來的最高水平。
為了您和家人的健康,請今天就上网预约,或直接到各药房和诊所接种( 新冠加強針可以和流感疫苗混合接种)


The flu season in 2022 started early and was devastating, according to CDC data released on November 15. At least 2.8 million people were sick and 23,000 were hospitalized, primarily in pediatrics. Flu hospitalizations are at a 10-year high. To make matters worse, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) cases have risen since October, creating a triple pandemic threat. Mild cases might infect millions and overwhelm hospitals. Several states' children's hospitals are infected. The elderly, children, and other high-risk groups with low immunity are encouraged to get both safe and effective flu and Covid vaccines.
Children over 6 months can be vaccinated against influenza, and those over 5 can get the current Covid booster. Since there is no RSV vaccine, you should wash your hands, wear a mask, and stay home if you're sick.
Make an appointment online at or visit pharmacies and clinics to get vaccinated (the new Covid booster shot can be mixed with the flu vaccine)

陳霞芬案達成和解協議 ⚖️

2014年,水文學家陳霞芬在俄亥俄州國家氣象局工作時被指控從事間諜活動並被捕。指控雖然在一年後被撤銷,但她還是被氣象局解僱,遭到嚴重不公正的待遇。經過 6 年的民事訴訟,案子才終於在11月10日達成了和解。這是美國商務部歷史上支付給個人的最大賠償金之一。
這個結果清楚地表明,針對特定族裔的歧視是不可接受的,像商務部ITMS這樣的不合理調查在民主社會裡是沒有立足之地的。 我非常感謝你們在這場漫長的鬥爭里對我所給予的善意和慷慨支持,你們的支持是我堅持走到今天的力量。”

MHACC 在此感謝曾經和我們一起募捐,一起为陳霞芬爭取正義的朋友們!❤️

The 10th of November is a special day. A landmark settlement was struck in the long-running Sherry Chen lawsuit. During her time at the Ohio National Weather Service in 2014, hydrologist Sherry Chen was arrested on charges of espionage. A year later, the accusations were dropped, but not before she had been fired from her position. A settlement was reached today after six years of civil action. This settlement represents one of the largest payments made by the Commerce Department to an individual.
“No amount of compensation can truly make up for the injustice I have experienced,” Sherry Chen wrote in her open letter.
“The settlement reached today, however, is a significant step toward redress for myself and the many other Chinese people who have been subjected to unjust government scrutiny. This finding demonstrates conclusively that racial discrimination is not permissible, and that investigations like the Commerce ITMS, which were arbitrary and capricious, have no place in a liberal democracy. Thank you so much for being there for me and keeping me going all the way through this ordeal."

MHACC would like to express its gratitude to everyone who has helped us gather money and advocate for Sherry Chen's rights.

新冠疫情的外展和教育總結會議 📖

11月10日,MHACC 成員受邀來到東灣韓國人社區中心,參加 KCCEB 舉辦的焦點小組會議,進行面對面的討論和學習,互相交流經驗和教訓,一起總結過去的成功和面對未來的挑戰。

在過去的一年中,MHACC 和其他 API 社區組織在亞裔社區中開展新冠疫苗的外展推廣和教育工作,超額完成了 RICE Collaborative 交給我們預期目標!

On November 10th, members of the MHACC gathered at the Dongwan Korean Community Center for a focus group meeting hosted by the KCCEB to engage in face-to-face discussions and learning, share the past experiences, and reflect on the group's collective successes and challenges.

Beyond the RICE Collaborative's initial goals, MHACC and other API community organizations have been actively engaged in COVID-19 vaccine outreach and education in the Asian community during the past year.

青少年心理健康急救課程 🏥

11月12和13日,MHACC 的執行長彭一玲帶領團隊為俄勒岡州的華人家長們進行了青少年心理健康急救課程的培訓(MHFA)


培訓結束的夜晚,聽聞當地一個華人家庭遭遇心理危機,Elaine 趕赴現場救助陌生家庭,在助人為樂的同時也剛好為學員們上了一堂很有意義的實踐課程 ❤️

Elaine Peng, director of MHACC, led team members to Oregon on November 12th and 13th to give an adolescent mental health first aid course (MHFA) training for Chinese parents.

This free program, co-hosted by the Oregon Chinese Alliance and MHACC, offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for adults interested in learning about adolescent mental health and assisting teens in coping with mental health crises. Upon completion of the training, you may earn the certificate in Mental Health First Aid.

At the end of the training session, a local Chinese family was going through a psychological crisis. Elaine went to the scene to assist the family. While assisting others, she provided the trainers with a very useful practical training.

反對亞裔仇恨的模擬培訓 💻
TAAF Action Center Simulation

11月17日,MHACC 團隊成員們參加了亞裔美國人基金會(The Asian American Foundation TAAF組織的亞裔仇恨案件在線模擬培訓。

教學由錫克教聯盟 提供,這種特殊的培訓理念是通過情境模擬一起仇恨犯罪的發生,追蹤案件的進展,了解嫌犯和被害人的心理和需求的變化,讓參與的學員對仇恨犯罪產生最直觀的認知,和最有同理心的思考。


The Asian American Foundation (TAAF) hosted an online simulation training about Asian hate incidents on November 17, in which MHACC team members participated.

The Sikh Coalition provides the instruction. This unique training idea is designed to imitate the incidence of a hate crime, track the case's progress, and comprehend changes in the psychology and requirements of the suspect and victim. It allows the participants to have the most intuitive cognition and cultivate empathetic thinking.

The training is organized into two parts: the first session focuses on the critical needs, and problems that develop within 48 hours of the hate incident. The second focuses on the mild and long-term needs that persist months after the incident, as demonstrated through examples. The trainees' dialogue and thinking skills are extremely important for Asian mental health practitioners.

On the 18th and 19th of November, from morning to night, MHACC volunteers took turns showing love and smiles. We wish everyone a safe and joyous Thanksgiving!

青少年心理健康動畫 🎬

《我的人生有意義》是一系列致力於倡導青少年心理健康和杜絕自殺的動畫短片,由著名的好萊塢製作人Terry Thoren(曾創作辛普森/Rugrats等系列動畫)帶隊製作。Terry 相信,動畫會以其他形式做不到的方式來幫助到年輕人。

Watch here English:

<My Life Is Worth Living> is a series of animated short films made by legendary Hollywood producer Terry Thoren (creator of the Simpsons, Rugrats, and other animation series) to promote adolescent mental health and prevent suicide.  Terry feels that animation has the potential to help young people in ways that other media cannot.
All videos are available in Chinese, allowing parents to find an effective and compassionate bridge for parent-child dialogue while watching with their children.
Series 1 (Amie's story): Amie, who is academically gifted, diligent, and self-disciplined, suddenly succumbs to unpleasant feelings. She feels out of place and felt as if she was a burden on her family and friends. She begins considering suicide. What happened to Amie?
