NAAPIMHA believes advocacy plays a critical role in promoting the mental health and well-being of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders. We know that mental health, particularly in AANHPI communities, continues to be a severely under-resourced area, and as a result, accessing culturally competent services is a challenge our communities face.

If we don't advocate, we don't have a voice to demand resources to support a broader understanding of mental health that includes language-accessible services, culturally relevant practices, and traditional modes of healing. NAAPIMHA is dedicated to advocating for AANHPI communities through policies and actions because we know mental health is something that touches everyone, and in today's world is more important than ever.

The GoodHood Immersions are designed to decrease the distance between people and places.  Many of the problems facing our city are caused by a failure to see one another clearly.

During the Immersion, you will get the opportunity to spend time with new people, in a new place and get a new perspective on the Eastside of San Antonio. After a half-day of walking, talking, and eating, you will not only be able to see people and places differently but you will also be able to decrease the distance that divides us.

If you are interested in attending an Immersion or scheduling one for your small group, please email Charles Foltz with the Subject: Immersions.

Partnering with Project Transformation to host programming for children can help re-anchor your congregation in your neighborhood.

Through this partnership, site churches are empowered to better cultivate two key traits of discipleship: radical hospitality and active listening.

Site churches are trained each year in best practices for leveraging the program by one another and Project Transformation. First and foremost, church members and staff are able to display radical hospitality as they greet children and their families, lead chapel services during programming each week, invite families to worship, and plan and attend Family Fun Night events with the young adults. Beyond this, the site church also enters, with more resources, a relationship of active listening in order to better learn and understand the community’s needs and assets.

Bridges to Care San Antonio (BTCSA) began October 1, 2020, as an endeavor to train congregations to be companions to those with mental health issues.

Participating congregations form cohorts in geographic proximity and work together to make a difference in the area of mental health, both among their members and in their neighborhoods.

Each congregation is invited to choose up to 10 Wellness Champions (trainees) who take five modules of training equal to 20 hours of work.

After completing the training, each congregation will be known as a Behavioral Health Friendly Congregation, meaning it is a congregation that welcomes those with mental health concerns.

For further information, contact Sherré Culbreath.

Training is provided free of charge.
