Every year, Project by Project selects a non-profit partner based on a theme or issue that addresses current needs in the Asian American community. This year, Project by Project SFis partnering up with Asian Community Mental Health Services (ACMHS). ACMHS was founded 40 years ago as the first organization to provide mental health services to the growing low income Asian and Pacific Islander (API) immigrant community in Alameda County. It has now grown to a staff of more than 100 that serves over 3000 persons per year. Mental health stigma is still one of the biggest challenges facing the API community. ACMHS aims to provide outreach through education on wellness practices and improve access to culturally competent services. Through prevention and early intervention programs, ACMHS reaches a wide range of age groups and provides counseling, youth programs, and peer assistance networks.
