Korean American Wellness Association (KAWA) is a not-for-profit organization, committed to promoting wellness of the Korean American community through increasing awareness of mental health issues, education, and bridging resources.
KAWA’s first goal is to establish a network of professionals (Psychiatrists, Psychotherapists & Social Workers) to provide and promote the needed information and resources through KAWA’s website (kawachicago.org). This way, mental health services are easily accessible by those in need. The second goal is to provide small workshops, seminars, and psycho-education, so our Korean families can better identify their children, families, and friends suffering from a mental illness. Our ultimate goal is to build a healthy and happy community.
