May is Asian Heritage Month in the United States and Canada!

Check out our page throughout the month as alpha Kappa Delta Phi celebrates the rich culture and history of Asians in North America. ‪ To kick off the month, we invite sisters to join in the “I’m Asian, but I’m not…” campaign inspired by BuzzFeed. The awareness campaign aims to address stereotyping in the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. Join the movement by promising to raise awareness to the stereotyping against AAPIs community – refrain from using words/terms that may be hurtful to others (which may include “that’s SO Asian!”, “You’re SUCH a FOB”, etc.), and overall, encourage family and friends to promote Asian Awareness rather than being overshadowed by stereotypes. Join the the conversation today and become a part of the “I’m Asian but I’m not Campaign.” #‎aKDPhiAAA‬ ‪#‎aKDPhiACA‬ ‪#‎aKDPhi‬...

AAIV Asian American Wellness and Mental Health Seminar: a faith-based perspective

AAIV Asian American Wellness and Mental Health Seminar: a faith-based perspective

Our sisters got to meet Jon Ido Warden, who is an author and licensed clinical psychologist, in a workshop-style presentation that covered mental health concepts and major issues faced by the Asian American community. We explored and defined an Asian American perspective on emotional wellness and mental health, especially how it relates to religion and faith. We also learned some strategies for dealing with stress and pressure as well as helping to outline resources for those who may seek them. This workshop allowed the discussion of the different mental health factors that affect Asian Americans in specific, and how we can address these factors in a safe and self-helping way. This workshop was great to attend because it raised the awareness of mental health issues amongst the Asian-American community, and offered ways of treating them (through counseling, spiritual guidance, or community).  Many thanks to AAIV for...
