Bridges Mental Health is a stigma-free hub for Asians, Pacific Islanders, South Asian Americans (APISA) living in the greater New York City area to discuss, navigate and seek mental health care. We strive to create a mutual space for individuals with diverse cultural, hyphenated identities, as well as therapists and providers who are passionate about serving this community.

Bridges helps facilitate connections to mental health providers through our Clinician Directory. Whether you are seeking a therapist who holds a shared cultural identity, or is passionate and knowledgeable about this community, we make it easier to find your match. 

At the core of Bridges is our Clinician Community, an active, growing network of mental health professionals who work with the APISA community. 

Finally, we aim to provide space and give voice to the specific stories and needs of the Asian American community as it intersects with mental health through our podcast Beyond the Couch, blog, and Instagram.

Our Team

Our Vision

We aim to cultivate a platform that gives voice to the wide array of APISA experiences as they intersect with various identities and mental health. This is a mutual space for both community members seeking mental health care and the individuals who provide it. While Bridges Mental Health currently centers mental health professionals, we hope to expand to more holistic aspects of wellness and healing for Asians, Pacific Islanders, and South Asian Americans.
