The Filipino Mental Health Initiative – San Francisco, San Mateo County, and student organizations and staff at San Francisco University, together, are pleased to offer their Inaugural Filipino Mental Health Symposium, “Kwentuhan: Sharing Our Stories” on Friday, April 11 at San Francisco State University’s Jack Adams Hall from 9am to 3pm.
Students, educators, community members, and health providers interested in promoting mental wellness within the Filipino and Filipino American community will find the symposium useful. Stories, discussions, and performances have been carefully selected to provide opportunities for the larger community to learn more about issues related to Filipino American children, families, and adults.

The theme “Kwentuhan: Sharing Our Stories” emphasizes the historical importance of story telling within Filipino culture and its potential for expanding our awareness around mental wellness. Through sharing our stories and the resources provided at the symposium, we hope to empower, dispel stigmas around mental health, and provide a place for others to meet people who are serving the Filipino and Filipino American communities.

Participants can register here:

Lunch and refreshments will be provided. This is a free event.
