AAPI Mental Health Zine Resource List

AAPI Mental Health Zine Resource List


Thanks for checking out our living resource list to accompany printed versions of our AAPI Mental Health Zine, "come eat fruit". The zine and this resource list was created by Cut Fruit Collective and is for the AAPI community to be used as a resource for our community to reconnect, heal, and grow. 

Disclaimer: The zine and resource list was created to be an educational resource and a tool for self-reflection. It is not medical advice or therapy. We encourage you to continue reflecting on topics of AAPI mental health with friends, family, community members, or mental health professionals. Last updated June 26 2023.
