AAPI Mental Health Zine Fundraiser
As a continuation of the important messages of AAPI Heritage Month and Mental Health Awareness month, Cut Fruit Collective has created “Come Eat Fruit,” a zine and resource for our community. This 70+ page zine is filled with approachable articles, stories and more addressing topics that especially impact AAPI mental health.
Surveys show that more than a third of AAPI adults felt that their mental health has worsened since the pandemic started. Yet AAPI adults are less likely than other racial groups to seek out mental health care (3 times less likely than their white counterparts).
Funds raised by Friday, June 16 will go towards Cut Fruit Collective’s AAPI mental health initiatives and a portion will be donated to Asian Health Services.
With enough contributions, we hope to be able to translate the zine from English to other AAPI languages and to print and distribute free copies to community resource centers such as Asian Health Services.
Asian Health Services, based in Oakland Chinatown, provides medical, dental, and behavioral health services to more than 50,000 patients in low-income and immigrant communities in 12 different Asian languages. As one of three nationally recognized anti-Asian hate action centers tapped to pilot and address the safety needs of patients and community, AHS is on the ground ensuring health is possible regardless of cultural, generational, and linguistic barriers. They are dedicated to ensuring community healing and safety and addressing racially-motivated violence through their Community Healing Unit.
