About Us

MISSION

WOORI MAUM strives to do the following:

  1. Increase understanding and awareness of mental health and mental illness facts and issues in the Korean Canadian community
  2. Reduce stigma against mental illness and persons living with mental illness in the Korean Canadian community
  3. Act as a liaison between high need community members and Korean Canadian mental health professionals
     

OBJECTIVES

WOORI MAUM will try to achieve its aim by:

  • Engaging in knowledge exchange activities to increase awareness of mental health, mental illness, the various treatment options and mental health promotion strategies
  • Increasing awareness of existing health and related social services and supporting these services to become more culturally and linguistically appropriate
  • Supporting and empowering mental health care professionals who are serving KCs through professional development activities
  • Filling the evidence gap by supporting mental health professionals who are studying KCs and by utilizing the existing research skills of our members to collect data, interpret existing findings, and to seek funding for studies on KC mental health issues.


HISTORY

WOORI MAUM formed in April 2013 as a result of a youth suicide-attempt in the KC community. An initial group of KC mental health professionals was called together by Dr. Samuel Noh at his residence to discuss the availability of culturally and linguistically appropriate resources to support such incidences and to prevent future ones. While the number of KC mental health professionals has grown since a decade earlier, no coordinating body existed to pull together professionals working across the mental health field in different organizations to develop more coordinated responses and resources for the KC community. Today, due to limited resources, WOORI MAUM focuses its current initiatives on advocating and providing assistance to KC youth and their caregivers.
