What? Improv?! Yes! Many people know improv as a form of entertainment, but it is also a guiding philosophy. Concepts like support, celebration of failure, and allowance to be silly can be incorporated into everyday life. The tenets of improv are especially applicable to the helping professions, aka YOU. It may sound overwhelming or even scary at first, but it is a rewarding way to learn more about yourself and collaborate better with clients and colleagues. There is no pressure to be funny or to perform. The only pressure is to present as your authentic self and be open and willing to engage. Improv always says to "follow the fear" so why not give this a try?!

In this interactive workshop, Mimi Khúc will lead participants in decolonizing our understandings of mental health by critically examining dominant ways of approaching mental health, generating our own collective definition of mental health, and exploring how our unwellness exceeds the medical concept of “diagnosis.”
Join us to understand what does it look like to fully examine Asian American unwellness and nurture Asian American wellness? What tools would we need to really diagnose–and care for–our collective unwellness? Participants will leave with new language around mental health and expanded approaches to care, for themselves and for each other.
Workshop content is geared towards mental health clinicians/ students training to be mental health clinicians. Recording of the webinar will be available to registrants after the event.
