WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“Beyond the promotora model: These projects are focused on immigrant wellness in culturally distinct ways”
“How three Philly groups are raising mental-health awareness in immigrant community”
“This Philly org provides Chinese immigrant families with the tools to heal, as the pandemic intensifies anti-Asian hate”
“Through CIFWI, I learned more about different topics like what a healthy career path or strong relationships look like. Most importantly, I was able to further explore my relationship with my family and my background as a second generation Chinese American, and learn how they intersect with the development of my mental health and wellness.”
Amy Xia (she/her), CIFWI Wellness Leader
“I’m incredibly grateful to have joined CIFWI…as one of the peer mentors for its Wellness Leadership Program this year. Personally, it has taught me so much about the different aspects of my mental wellbeing and truly given me a safe space where I feel everyone’s voice is heard and celebrated, and where our mental health is openly talked about, instead of being hidden.”
