The seven new health priorities of the newly elected mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, have been released, and the first priority is mental health.
Midwest Asian Health Association (MAHA) is the only organization serving the Asian American population selected to convene the Chicago Collaborative for Bullying and Suicide Prevention (CCBSP).
Collaborating with the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) and Erie Neighborhood House (ENH), we aim to provide meaningful impact across the City of Chicago through resource development, community awareness, and education opportunities. One of our first steps is working together to identify agencies, groups, and individuals that may have an interest in these important matters to create the Chicago Collaborative for Bullying and Suicide Prevention (CCBSP). Interested groups and individuals are invited to meet and develop a shared vision of what we plan to achieve by working together.
