If you come from Asian Pacific Islander or cross-culture family, you now have access to global mental health providers and evidence-based methods with curaJOY’s emotional wellness directory.
There are a myriad issues facing immigrant and third-culture families in the US, and sadly, limited access to emotional wellness services is one of them.
Non-profit curaJOY believes that it doesn't have to be this way. In response, it created a global emotional wellness directory, ensuring that Asian Pacific Islander, multicultural, cross-cultural, and third-world adults and children have access to inclusive and effective care that caters to their specific needs.

curaJOY’s directory is in line with the company's vision to drive greater advocacy, acceptance, and innovation of emotional wellness programs for families across different cultures.
According to the latest research, Asian Pacific Islander adults are least likely to seek mental health treatment - with only 4.9 percent using mental health services annually. Other studies found that due to the prevalent stigma around mental health, API individuals often lack family support. This is compounded by insufficient resources and specialists who can provide race-informed care. To address this pressing need, curaJOY aims to improve access to specialist mental health care for Asian Pacific Islander individuals and other minorities through its new directory.
Advocating for better access to emotional wellness for families of all cultures, curaJOY features a wide range of vetted service providers who have extensive experience working with people from Asian, Pacific Islander, third-culture, cross-culture, and multi-culture populations - as well as immigrants in general. If you or a family member are in need of race-informed care, curaJOY should be your first stop.
All providers on the new platform offer evidence-based treatments and must undergo a vetting process. The directory does not feature any advertised content - and you can use it for free!
Along with increasing access to emotional wellbeing tools for all populations, the goal of the new directory is to provide a preventative approach to mental health and reduce inequity and service costs.
Founder and CEO Caitlyn Wang, who has personally struggled to find appropriate support for her autistic child, says, “curaJOY shapes families’ behaviors and thus environments by engaging children and parents through programs designed to build their self-confidence, and social-emotional skills and improve their interaction dynamics. In this way, we aim to enhance the entire family’s emotional wellness and develop the next generation of successful adults and community leaders who will lead the way in developing socially responsible, diverse, and peaceful communities.”
