Asian & Pacific Islander Mental Health Empowerment Conference (APIMHEC) 2019
November 21 – 22, 2019 • Clovis Veteran’s Memorial District, Clovis CA
The purpose of the annual Asian & Pacific Islander Mental Health Empowerment Conference (APIMHEC) is to increase awareness of mental health concerns and to promote improvement of mental health services for Asian & Pacific Islander (API) communities.
The 2019 APIMHEC Conference will be hosted by Fresno County’s Department of Behavioral Health at Clovis Veteran’s Memorial District. This conference will convene mental health service providers, consumers, family members, students, researchers, and advocates from within Fresno County and across California.
