Catalyst Wellness Alliance started by faith, in response to the urgency of today’s situation with Asian American & Pacific Islanders’ mental health and wellness. We believe that Jesus came to give a life of abundance and flourishing, but this is sorely lacking among AAPI communities, especially in mental wellness.
