CAPM is concerned about cuts affecting Mental Health Care, Refugee and Immigrant Access to Health Care, and care for the Elderly, Disabled, and Low-income

  • Mental health remains to be a top concern of the Asian Pacific Islander American (APIA) community, especially with high levels of depression, suicide, and PTSD.
  • CAPM is troubled by accounts of refugees arriving in the US with no support or introduction on how to secure basic needs such as housing, school enrollment for children, etc. Elimination of health care coverage could exacerbate refugee population’s ability to reclaim security and independence in their lives.
  • CAPM is concerned that many of these cuts would negatively impact APIA individuals and families with elderly, disabled, and/or low-income statuses. The loss of health care and safety net programs could create more educational and economic barriers, especially for families with children.
