About NAPAFASA

NAPAFASA is a private, non-profit, 501(c)(3) membership organization dedicated to mental health advocacy through research, efforts at public health and policy reform, and community empowerment.

We are committed to social justice and health equity through working to reduce substance use disorder, promoting harm reduction, and partnering with our communities to achieve mental wellness. In order to get there, we know it takes putting community voices at the heart of our work.

We aim to involve

This means direct participation by everyday people, sharing their views and experiences.

We aim to connect

It means bringing people together to share knowledge, tools, personal stories, and encouragement with each other.

We aim to represent

While we are rooted in serving Asian American and Pacific Islander communities, we know that the well-being of one community is bound up with the well-being across diverse communities, so we work with people from all backgrounds.
