Asian American Mental Health A Call to Action

The purpose of AMHS is to improve access for Asian communities to mental health services, especially for Asian migrants who have limited English skills and are unfamiliar with the New Zealand health system. AMHS endeavours to provide a seamless service and positive experience to service users and their families. AMHS was developed in in response to the increasing demands of mental health professionals in supporting Asian mental health service users receiving treatment recovery process. Difficulties in communication and engagement were identified as barriers to positive intervention outcomes due to huge differences in the perspectives and expectations between clinicians and their patients.
Insufficient access to mental health services in Asian American communities is a national problem. Yet, Asian Americans are three times less likely than their white counterparts to seek and utilize mental health services. Several factors contribute to this racial disparity in access to care. First, there is a persistent misconception that the needs of Asian Americans—a diverse group—are monolithic, or even nonexistent.
