National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month – Asian-Americans

Asian-Americans are the 3rd largest minority population in Butler County and are the largest minority group in Warren County according to census.gov. Studies show that Asian-Americans are three times less likely than their white counterparts to seek treatment for their mental health concerns. Many factors affect their ability to seek help, such as language barriers, acceptance of Western medicine, age, gender, occupational issues, religion, traditional beliefs about mental health, and family structure.
