COVID-19 Racism and Mental Health in Chinese American Families

Year: 2020

This study revealed that a high percentage of Chinese American parents and their children personally experienced or witnessed anti-Chinese or antiAsian American racial discrimination both online and in person due to the COVID-19 pandemic. One in 4 parents and youth reported vicarious racial discrimination almost every day, and most respondents reported directly experiencing or witnessing racial discrimination against other Chinese or Asian American individuals due to COVID-19 at least once. These numbers are highly concerning and support the calls for attention to the issue of racism during the COVID-19 pandemic.
