AAPI folk face many unique challenges to our mental health and well-being that stem from a combination of cultural differences, intergenerational trauma, and being a POC.
Together, our group explores and challenges one another to explore both the current and the past to become better people.
Our Shimmer Groups draw off of years of peer support and group therapy research. We believe in the power of connecting those with similar identities and experiences. Learn more about the evidence behind Shimmer Groups.
Shimmer Asian American and Pacific Islander Groups are for those looking to meet other AAPI who are hoping to improve their mental health. Our expert facilitator meets with your group of 6-8 individuals once a week for 60 minutes. You'll also get access to mood tracking, gratitude journaling, and community events on our custom digital platform. Together, you'll:
✨ Meet other AAPI identifying folks who are interested in improving their well-being.
✨ Learn from one another through open, vulnerable discussions on identity, culture, and mental health.
✨ Stay accountable and feel supported by other AAPI folk.
Our curriculum is carefully developed by a licensed mental health therapist, Sharon Kim LMHC, and an expert group psychiatrist doctor from UCSF, Amin Azzam MD.
We use a mix of theory, discussion, exercises, and support to develop meaningful connections, honest conversations, and a community you can feel supported by.
