About Us

The Center for Japanese Mental Health (a.k.a. CJMH) was formed in 2014 as a 501(c)(c3) non-profit organization for exclusively charitable and educational purposes. Specifically, CJMH seeks to improve the mental health and well-being of people of Japanese descent, in the USA and abroad, by

  • de-stigmatizing mental illness and treatment by education and outreach to Japanese communities;
  • development and administration of mental health programs and counseling services;
  • professional development, training and support of mental health providers and caregivers who will in turn better support their communities;
  • charitable giving, at the discretion of the board of directors, to non-profit organizations with similar goals of aiding Japanese communities;
  • providing financial aid to deserving students pursuing masters or doctorate level degrees in mental health related disciplines or interns working towards licensure in a mental health related licensed profession;
  • and research for the furtherance of the preceding goals.

 

Where We Work

CJMH conducts its activities primarily in the United States in the Greater Los Angeles area. However, its representatives may engage in public speaking, seminars and workshops, educational exchanges, mental health program and service development, marketing and advertising, and research collaborations outside the United States, particularly in Japan.
