LA Times Instagram live on Filipino American mental health
I went on Instagram live on Wednesday with the LA Times for a conversation with my editor, Ada Tseng, and two experts on Filipino American mental health: Kevin Nadal, a professor of psychology at the City University of New York and author of “Filipino American Psychology,” and Christine Catipon, a clinical psychologist at the UC Irvine Counseling Center. I interviewed both of them in my latest story about the impact of cultural values on mental health in the community.
We had a great conversation and took a couple of questions from folks who tuned in.
I was a little swamped earlier in the week and wasn’t able to send out a newsletter before the live happened, but wanted to share the video since it’s available on the LA Times’ Instagram account. I’m not sure how long it will be there, so I hope you’ll find some time to watch it/listen to it while it’s still up. And please feel free to share with folks who might find it helpful.
Hope you have a great weekend! I’ll check in again once we finalize details for the focus group on substance use for my next story.
