MindBoba is the working name for a NIMH funded project called Personal Relevance of Psychotherapy for Asian Americans: A mHealth problem-solving intervention to reduce stress (PRoP-AA). MindBoba aims to destigmatize mental health among the Asian American* population.
Recent data have shown Asian Americans persistently present with low rates of mental health help-seeking. With the impact of COVID-19, coupled with ongoing stressors from work, school, and family, stress-levels have understandably skyrocketed.
Mindboba is being developed by and for Asian Americans. The goal of Mindboba is to provide resources and help Asian American users recognize cultural barriers and assumptions, learn and practice problem-solving skills, and make strategic decisions to reduce stress.
We are currently looking for people who would like to participate in our design research activities. This includes user testing and participating in focus groups, review panels, or completing questionnaires about stress reduction practices within Asian American communities. If you are interested in participating, please take this brief survey to see if you qualify.
