In 2016, the Asian American Literary Review (AALR) published Open in Emergency: A Special Issue on Asian American Mental Health. In addition to visual and literary art, the special issue contains a set of materials and activities that, according to their website, decolonizes mental health and opens up a wealth of new approaches. Members of the the AALR collective will offer a workshop focused on new ways of understanding mental illness in the context of social factors in the production of mental wellness and unwellness, with a goal of empowering people to make informed decisions regarding their own mental health.
