"Transformation" —
a complete change in the appearance or character of something or someone, especially so that thing or person is improved.

We are excited to be presenting our 3rd annual virtual TransformAsian conference. Each year, our goal is to connect the Asian community across all walks of life as a way to support mental health journeys. We chose “TransformAsian” to embody our belief in the power of change, and the importance of celebrating radical healing and recovery.

Our theme for this year is “Mixed Realities and Blended Spaces: Leveraging the Digital Era in Normalizing Mental Health.” In light of an ever-encompassing digital world, please join us as we navigate the intersection between rapid changes in technology and our wellness.
