Mental Health Association for Chinese Communities(MHACC)Founder / President / CEO
 

Elaine Peng worked as a Chinese teacher for more than 10 years, but since 2013, she has been a dedicated mental health advocate and educator providing education to reduce public prejudice against mental illness, as well as decreasing stigma among caregivers. She has started five Chinese support groups and developed the first NAMI Chinese website www.namichinese.org in the United States. Elaine is a leader and developer of multiple mental health programs for the Chinese community. As a consumer and family member, she helps to promote mental health services and provide peer support to the underserved Chinese community.Her only purpose was to help those who desperately need help; hoping that through programs what the MHACC provide, they do not have to experience the despair she went through. She was the recipient of the 2016 NAMI National's Multicultural Outreach Award, and the 2017 NAMI California's Multicultural Outreach Award.
