Welcome to AAPI Artists for Mental Initiative (AAMI), a  501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Los Angeles, dedicated to promoting mental wellness within the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community through the transformative power of the arts. We believe that creativity can serve as a powerful tool for healing, raising awareness, and creating meaningful change.


At AAMI, we understand the unique challenges that the AAPI community faces when it comes to mental health. Cultural barriers, stigma, and a lack of accessible resources often prevent individuals from seeking the support they need. That's why we are committed to challenging the stigma and silence surrounding mental health issues in the AAPI community and creating a safe and supportive space where individuals can express themselves, connect with others, and find solace.


Our mission is to empower AAPI artists to use their talents to raise awareness, spark dialogue, and advocate for mental wellness. By providing a platform for AAPI artists to showcase their work, we aim to destigmatize mental health and provide resources and support for those who are struggling. Through our exhibitions, performances, workshops, and collaborative projects, we seek to foster empathy, build bridges between communities, and initiate transformative conversations that lead to real change.


What sets AAMI apart is our evidence-based approach. We believe in the power of research and best practices to guide our initiatives and ensure their effectiveness. By staying informed about the latest developments in the field of mental health, we can offer programs and resources that truly make a difference.


Through our website, we aim to provide a valuable resource for the AAPI community and beyond. Here, you can explore the inspiring artwork and stories of AAPI artists, access educational materials on mental health, find information about available resources, and engage with our initiatives. We invite you to join us on this journey toward destigmatizing mental health and promoting well-being.


Thank you for your interest in AAMI. Together, let's create a world where mental health is prioritized, celebrated, and supported by everyone, especially within the entertainment industry.
