Division on South Asian Americans within AAPA

94 Signatures Goal: 100

We would like to establish a division within AAPA that provides awareness of South Asian mental health issues. The South Asian community consists of people from the following countries: India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, and the Maldives. Within the Asian and Pacific Islander subgroup, South Asians are the fourth largest ethnic subgroup, approximating a population of 2,963,999 in the U.S. (U.S. Census Bureau, 2000). This division would be called the Division on South Asian Americans. The need for this division emerged from a grassroots movement that began in August 2001 when the South Asian Psychological Networking Association (SAPNA) listserv was developed to connect individuals interested in South Asian mental health. Since its inception, SAPNA has created a website at www.oursapna.org and listserv membership currently totals 357 members residing in the U.S., Canada, India, Pakistan, United Kingdom, Japan, and New Zealand. Given SAPNA
