Mental health has become the biggest burden on China's healthcare and the country is currently lacking enough psychiatric health providers to accommodate the enormous sick population. Additionally, statistics point to Chinese-Americans having significantly lower diagnosis and treatment rates for mental disorders than those of other ethnicities. It is now imperative that healthcare providers in China and the U.S. are prepared to combat this disparity both in numbers and effective treatment solutions. This symposium will explore why treatment rates are low, how this populations is often overlooked, as well as launch the creation of a local health network and research collaboration to aid Chinese-Americans fight against mental illness. Food will be served.
