Leadership Project: Designing a Digital Platform for Mental Health Education

Project Description: This project was created with the intent to connect Asian-Americans with fellow Asian-American therapists, mental health professionals, and other mental health resources. We want to de-stigmatize mental health illnesses in the community, and create a supportive & safe place to help connect similar minded individuals together.
