Best Practices in Behavioral Health for Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Boys and Men

Posted by on July 12th, 2017 Posted in: Children and Teens, Minority Health Concerns

A new report from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) highlights existing programs that address behavioral health disparities among Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander boys and young men. It also outlines effective tools and best practices in working with this population. Included are strategies for practitioners, educators, and community leaders: 1) Integrate culturally-based strategies, 2) Address masculinity and gender roles, 3) Discuss coping strategies and promote help-seeking behaviors, 4) Acknowledge experiences of racism and microaggression, 5) Discuss immigration and generational issues, 6) Be knowledgeable of ethnicity-specific concerns and 7) Consider sexual orientation issues. Recommendations are also included for policy makers and funders. Download the free report here.
