Workshop Description: Have you ever scrolled past a “clean girl aesthetic” TikTok? Have you ever watched an excessive nighttime self-care routine, thinking you’ll never be able to do the same? Chances are, you’re not alone. Our workshop is dedicated to dismantling western-centric, exclusive conceptions of mental health. This includes the frequent promotion of individual therapies, overemphasis on materialism, and overprescription of medication. Through discussion and action plans, we will aim to broaden typical mental health practices to culturally-grounded contexts, coming up with an “Asian Edition” of mental health. Open to Asian-identifying high school students.
