An Educational Seminar: How to Cope with Pandemic-related Anxiety and Bullying

Many of us have been impacted by COVID-19 in more ways than we’ve ever anticipated, including the toll on our mental health. The social pressure facing Chinese and other Asian American youths, in particular, has been challenging to many families. To help our youth and families cope with mental stresses during the pandemic, United Chinese Americans (UCA), UCA Illinois Chapter, Cornerstone Education, and the Calvin J Li Foundation are organizing an educational webinar titled: “How to Cope with Anxiety and Bullying During Covid-19,” to be held on Friday, June 12, 2020 @9 p.m. EST. The webinar will be conducted in Chinese, and an English version will be available at a later date. Please register here: http://june0713.mikecrm.com/1ouzmt0

The first part of the webinar features Dr. Weiyang Xie, a licensed clinical psychologist and a consultant for UCA’s youth mental health initiative. Dr. Xie will discuss coping strategies related to anxiety and bullying. The second part of the panel will feature a group of young students and professionals who will share their experience, including Jeff He, Tim He, Connor Hu, Frank Li, Zachary Wu, Andy Yu, and Sophie Zheng. The discussion will be hosted and moderated by Dr. Paul Li. Dr. Li is the founder of the Calvin J Li Foundation, and is also a UCA board member and UCA youth mental health co-coordinator. 

疫情给全人类带来困惑、焦虑和不安。 对孩子们来说,更是如此: 他(她)们迷茫,不知所措;有的甚至选择极端的方式。如何引导孩子的健康发展,如何及时排查孩子们的变化,如何疏导他们的焦虑,如何面对可能出现的霸凌,都成了刻不容缓的话题。请大家注册参加 6/12 周五美中时间晚间八点的讲座。 健康生活和学习,人人关注:http://june0713.mikecrm.com/1ouzmt0
