A journalist friend informed me that a major national mental health organization provided a list of “Psychologists available to discuss Anti-Asian Racism and Violence”. It included many people who have mentored me or have been invaluable to @AAPAonline & #AsianAmericanPsychology.
Please follow all of these amazing Asian American Psychologists and their work: @seachellez @drmichifu @gnhall2 @HelenHsuPsyD @RichLeePhD @DrWillMingLiu @drpriscillalui @deraldwingsue @DrSherryCWang & Dr. Jenny Wang (IG: @ asiansformentalhealth)
Two weeks ago, I contacted the organization to let them know that I was concerned that their list included 9 East Asian Americans and 1 Filipina American and that it was not inclusive of the many South Asian and Southeast Asian American psychologists who are doing amazing work.

Okay, let's try to put the Taiwanese diaspora in Australia on the map for #APIAHM (yeah we like to be included whatever the US is doing). Just some personal observations. Brisbane, Queensland hosts the largest Taiwanese community in Australia. It's like the California here. (1)
If he/she is from Brisbane, it is also likely that the family came from Kaoshiung. Absurd but people say it's the similar climate. The Taiwanese community, along with the HK migrants, were some of the earlier non-white migrants after the abolishment of White Australia policy. (2)
So in the 80s & 90s, TW migrants socialise predominantly with HK, Chinese-Malaysian & Chinese migrants, usually in Chinese-language churches. However, more Taiwanese churches were established in the 90s & 00s (because of new Chinese migrants crowding them out in cities?) (3)
