Anti-Racism,

Antiracism, Anti-Asian
Sponsored by NYCCAP's Antiracism Taskforce
Dear NYCCAP Family,

NYC has over 1 million Asian Americans in the city proper, making it the city with the largest total Asian population in the US. The impact of anti-Asian sentiments is felt in our patients, our friends, and our colleagues. This is a critical time to commit ourselves to combat racism of all kinds. Let's mobilize and use the power and privilege we hold as child and adolescent psychiatrists individually, and as members of any organizations we are part of to further equity and justice for all. Please join us in any way you can as we stand with AACAP nationally in this fight and contribute locally.

In solidarity,
NYCCAP's Anti-Racism Taskforce

C2C integrates mental health services into programs already serving low-income communities where people may not know they need help, or are reluctant to access it. ". . . our city is taking a huge leap forward in our quest to embed mental health resources in the places where people live, work, play, and go for help." -- Chirlane McCray, First Lady and Chair, Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City (see Letter from the First Lady)
