St. Jude Children’s Hospital Teams Up With ‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ for Virtual Event Series

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – This week, Disney Animation Studios will celebrate the release of its movie “Raya and the Last Dragon” by working with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® to spread joy through a series of virtual events for St. Jude patient families and its generous supporters.

Mental health has never been the easiest subject to talk about for Asian Americans, and with everything else going on with our community, we could all probably use a good check in on our mental well-being. Whether that’s through simple breathwork, meditation, going to therapy, or finding a community that helps you cope and grow, being mentally healthy is about keeping up those good habits (and trust me, it’s very worth it).
