Chinese Immigrant Family Wellness Program

Community Fund for Wellness

By introducing mental and emotional wellness as a key “pillar of health”, the Chinese Immigrant Family Wellness Program will reduce stigmas and support connection and community in Philadelphia’s Chinatown.

About

Chinese culture places importance on three “pillars of health” – excellent morality, wealth of knowledge, and good physical health, leaving mental and emotional health largely neglected. Thus, many Chinese immigrant youth and adults in Philadelphia face a myriad of behavioral health risk factors and barriers to care. Mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and addiction often go undiagnosed.

The Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation (PCDC) and Hall-Mercer have partnered to develop The Chinese Immigrant Family Wellness Program, which aims to introduce mental and emotional health as a key component of health for the Chinese immigrant community. The program is structured around three goals:

  1. Increasing knowledge and understanding of mental health and emotional distress.
  2. Improving attitudes toward behavioral health through stigma reduction and intergenerational communication.
  3. Increasing healthy behaviors that support mental and emotional wellbeing.

While PCDC provides deep connections to the Chinese immigrant community, Hall Mercer provides strong knowledge of behavioral health issues. The two are partnering to bring Mental Health First Aid, mental and emotional health messaging, and Family Wellness Workshops to the community in order to meet their shared goals.
