Hi, friend.

I’m so glad you’re here.



I created this blog for you.

Three years ago, while hysterically crying on a plane back to Arizona. I vowed to no longer hide my struggles with depression and anxiety. I began to scour the internet for someone who had similar cultural experiences as me. I searched for hours.

No one I found looked like me. No one I found talked about their struggles of balancing their immigrant parents’ expectations while navigating American culture. I realized at that moment that I needed to start this blog and share my truths and destigmatize the conversation around mental disorders in the Filipino community.

I began to write everything I thought about, even my most darkest thoughts and shared them here on this blog. I realized there were so many people suffering in silence. Too afraid to ask for help for fear of being ostracized, ridiculed, ignored or not taken seriously.

I knew what that fear felt like. I’ve compiled mental health resources, article, hotlines and housed them all in one place. These resources are for those who reside in the United States.

Asian Americans specifically Filipino Americans, I’ve .

Take your time and look around.

What is a warm line?

Unlike a hotline for those in immediate crisis, warmlines provide early intervention with emotional support that can prevent a crisis – and a more costly 911 call or ER visit. The lines are typically free, confidential peer-support services staffed by volunteers or paid employees who have experienced mental health conditions themselves.
