SOMERVILLE, NJ- The New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome’s Wednesday Webinar series will explore mental health issues in today’s Asian American community. Dr. Andrew Lee designed this presentation to shed light on the cultural factors contributing to the stigma surrounding mental illness.

Dr. Lee will discuss Asian cultural values that may prevent a person in need from seeking out mental health services. The webinar will also include a look at the model minority myth-the negative implications of this myth, and the role of ethnic identity and acculturation.
