We have to write an 8 page paper on a topic of our choice but I chose mental illness within the Asian cultures. We had to do a final paper proposal and these were my ideas.. to give a little bit of background on how Asian Americans faced harassment and stereotyping from their different lifestyle choices over the traditional American family. Then I wanted to talk about common mental illnesses Asian Americans encounter and the difficulties they face when seeking help. Whether that be from family to outside sources. I want to talk about Suicide rates because statistically Asian college students had a higher rate than than white American at committing suicide. Lastly I wanted to talk about generally it’s difficult for men to seek help and if that plays a role in Asian cultures. Other things to add in are, the specific stereotype of Asians being knows to be smarter and having this perception they need to live up to those standards. How men were treated differently because when everyone was immigrating, the only jobs were housekeeping jobs so Americans made Asian men feel less about themselves due to getting a job meant for a female. It must be thesis-driven and organized.
