🌷 五月是心理健康宣传月💚

自1949 年以来,每年的5月是美國的心理健康宣傳月。心理健康月的目的是通过提高对心理健康状况,和患有心理健康状况的人的认识,帮助消除与精神疾病相关的污名。整个五月,我们都在学习如何照顧自己的心理健康,对自己和對他人更關愛。

 

🦋 May is Mental Health Awareness Month💚

Mental Health Awareness Month has been recognized and observed in the United States each May since 1949. The purpose of Mental Health Month is to help eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness by raising awareness of mental health conditions and those who have them. Throughout May we are learning to take care of our mind and be kinder to ourselves and other people.💚

🌷 專為心理精神健康挑戰的人群设计使用的手机 App 上線啦!

美國華裔精神健康聯盟MHACC經過過去2年來的努力,開發出了兩款專門服務我們社區的手機應用程序軟件App,研發人員及義工們召開過無數次會議,徵集了118名面試者,做了兩百份問卷,舉行過60次一對一的訪談,可以說,我們app的開發基於強大的社區要求。

應用程序軟件一款的目標對像是患者,名叫 “UrSpace - 慰籍小屋” 💕
另一款的目標對象使用者是照顧者. 名叫 “MiSunshine - 陽光地帶” 💕

App已經在Apple蘋果店和Google安卓店同步上架,  希望大家積極下載。
關愛自己,關心家人,專注心理健康,支持我們!

🦋 UrSpace 和 MiSunshine - Apps designed for mentally health community

Over the past 2 years, MHACC have been working hard to develop two mobile Apps specifically to serve our community. R&D staff and volunteers have held numerous meetings, collected real life data through interviews,to make sure that our Apps are based on strong community requirements.

One of the Apps targeting the patients, is called "UrSpace” 
💕
Another one is for caregivers,is called “MiSunshine” 💕

The Apps have been launched in the Apple Store and Android Store for everyone to download for free.

🌷 5月13日是第十一届 邁向健康 We Move For Health (WM4H)活動

阿拉米達郡人力資源教育中心 (HHREC)與其他社區合作夥伴緊密合作,共同舉辦了「为健康,动起来 - 千方百计」網上活動。活動內容有:瑜伽、太極,非洲舞蹈、Hip Hop、正念課程,身心健康演講、健康煮食菜譜演示,和現場抽奖等。
此網上活动主要以英語進行,部分有西班牙語和廣東話翻譯
美國華裔精神健康聯盟與你們一起邁向健康!为健康,动起来!
💕

阿拉米達郡10×10健康運動的由來:根據數據統計,在美國,有嚴重精神健康挑戰的人群的平均壽命比患有其他慢性疾病(糖尿病,心臟病,呼吸道疾病,愛滋病等)人群的平均壽命少25年。鑑此,阿拉米達郡在2012年推出了一個項目,希望用十年的時間讓有精神健康挑戰人群的平均壽命增加十年,這個項目呼籲健康運動和健康飲食習慣,籍此種種有益康復的活動來提升生活品質,提供支持和減少歧視。
美國華裔精神健康聯盟一直是阿拉米達郡“10×10健康運動”籌委會成員之一。

 

🦋 On May 13th, we celebrate the 11th We Move For Health(WM4H) event

The Alameda County Human Resource Education Center (HHREC) worked closely with other community partners to co-host the event。
The Online Activities include: yoga, Tai Chi, African dance, Hip Hop, Mindfulness classes, Food Demonstration, Local Organizations Give Inspirational Messages, Raffles with Prizes, and much more!(The event is mainly conducted in English, with some translations in Spanish and Cantonese)
10×10 Health Campaign:In the U.S., people with serious mental health challenges die 25 years younger than the general population of chronic health conditions (diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases, HIV and AIDS). Given this data,Alameda County launched a program in 2012, called the 10×10 Health Campaign, which hopes to increase the average life expectancy of people with mental health challenges by ten years.
The program calls for healthy exercise and healthy diet habits, through which recovery activities improve quality of life, provide support and reduce discrimination.
The MHACC has been a member of the organizing committee of this program。

MHACC joins you to move towards health together!

"Because many workers are the caregiver for our mentally illness patients, I am willing to serve as a board member to fight for the rights of all workers. I am responsible for San Francisco, Alameda County, Santa Clara County, Marin county, Contra Costa County, San Mateo county, so there are still many contract negotiations waiting for us to fight,one by one 💪"

🌷 聖地牙哥警長回信關於 Yan Li 女士案件

2022年3月3日,聖地亞哥居民Yan Li女士被聖地亞哥市和郡警察射殺身亡。美國華裔精神健康聯盟(MHACC)對這起慘烈的槍擊事件深感震驚,心碎。
MHACC在3月25日致聖地亞哥執法部門的公開信中指出:  我們認為聖地亞哥縣治安官部門和聖地亞哥市警方在處理Yan Li女士的情況時不當使用了致命武力。我們要求對Yan Li女士的死亡進行獨立和透明的調查,並將調查結果公之於眾。我們還要求審查和修訂執法部門處理精神危機的政策,尤其是那些涉及語言和文化障礙的政策,以避免將來發生此類不幸事件。

在4月1日,我們收到聖地亞哥市警長的回信,信中提到:💕
此案目前正由凶杀案组、地方检察官办公室和公民执法审查委员会进行独立审查,以查明是否存在违反政策和刑法的行为。除了这些,治安部门还将对我们的策略和培训进行内部审查。所有这些审查都可能导致刑事指控、纪律处分、培训和政策变化。

MHACC將盡最大努力繼續關注此案進展,為Yan Li 女士的家人提供支持,追究責任和尋求公義,並呼籲更加完善的執法培訓和警方處理程式,以安全地應對涉及精神健康危機的情況。

🦋 A letter from the San Diego Sheriff About Ms Yan Li
On March 3rd, 2022, San Diego resident Ms. Yan Li was shot and killed by San Diego City and County Police. MHACC is deeply shocked and heartbroken by this tragic incident.
In a March 25th open letter to San Diego law enforcement, MHACC stated: "We believe that the San Diego County Sheriff's Department and the San Diego City Police used lethal force inappropriately in handling Ms. Yan Li's situation. We demand an independent and transparent investigation into Ms Yan Li's death. We also demand that law enforcement policies for dealing with mental crises, especially those involving language and cultural barriers, be reviewed and revised to avoid such unfortunate incidents in the future.

On April 1, we received a letter from the San Diego Sheriff,it states:
Ms Yan Li‘s case is currently under independent review by the Homicide unit, the District Attorney's Office, and the Citizens Law Enforcement Review Board,to find out if there are any violations of the policy and criminal laws. In addition to these reviews,the sheriff‘s department will do an internal review on our strategies and training. 
All of these reviews can lead to criminal charges, discipline, training and policy changes.

MHACC will do its best to continue monitoring the progress, keep supporting Ms Yan Li's family, hold accountable and seek justice, and call for better law enforcement training and police to safely respond to situations involving a mental health crisis.

🦋🌷 正向神經心理學講座5月10日

加大洛杉矶分校精神病学教授Robert Bilder博士主讲的网络讲座:正向神经心理学,通向心理健康的维度方法,在美国西部时间5月10日下午6:30-7:30進行。(MHACC提供即时中⽂翻译)

Bilder博士解释说:目前的大脑和行为理论表明,不同的精神状况之间没有显著的分界线,健康和疾病之间也没有明确的界限。  相反,大脑功能可能有不同维度,在这些维度上我们都有差异,而大脑功能的这些维度之间的相互作用决定了我们在面对压力时的复原力。  本讲座将总结目前关于这些维度的想法,集中讨论如何使用正向心理学的策略来提高心理健康和增加对压力的复原力。 在全球范围内应用这些做法可以减少常见的精神疾病50%以上。

🦋 Webinar: Positive Neuropsychology
A Dimensional Approach to Mental Health by Dr. Robert Bilder
Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA, May 10, 6:30-7:30pm EST.
(MHACC provides instant Chinese translation)

Dr Bilder explained: "Current brain and behavioral theories suggest that there is no clear dividing line between different mental conditions, nor a clear boundary between health and disease. Instead, there may be different dimensions of brain function in which we all differ, and the interplay between these dimensions of brain function determines our resilience in the face of stress. This talk will summarize current thinking on the brain dimensions, focusing on how strategies from positive psychology can be used to improve mental health and increase resilience to stress. Applying these practices globally could reduce common mental illnesses by more than 50%.
