 Massachusetts General Hospital Cross Cultural Student Emotional Wellness: Center

The Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Cross-Cultural Student Emotional Wellness is a consortium of clinicians, educators, and researchers who are passionate about understanding and promoting the emotional health and psychological resilience of students and scholars from diverse cultural backgrounds. The Center was founded by three Boston-based physicians who recognized a tremendous need to support the emotional health of students from non-Western cultures after receiving increasing referrals of Asian Americans in the 15-35 age range for problems like anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts. The founders partnered with a diverse group of local and regional stakeholders to tackle these complex challenges and improve the lives of students. For more information, visit www.mghstudentwellness.com.
